Torello Farm (#039)

Torello Farm – Dromana

Torello Farm is an old market garden that has been given a new life and is now growing a diverse range of produce including specialty potatoes, heirloom vegetables and tree ripened fruit. Each season you will find new lines of vegetables, as well as tried and tested varieties.

On our property in Tuerong we also grow Belted Galloway cattle and Dorset Down sheep. We have specially chosen these heritage breeds because they are slow growing and produce wonderful flavoured meat.

All the fruit and vegetables we grow, as well as our grass fed, dry aged Belted Galloway beef, is available for sale at our farm gate shop. We also source produce from other local farms. Our shop is open 7 days,  8am – 6pm (closed public holidays).

Please visit our website (torellofarm.com.au ) or Instagram and Facebook pages (@torellofarm) for more information about our seasonal offerings.

Mornington Peninsula Hydroponics (#004)

Frank and Luana Donato own Mornington Peninsula Hydroponics, a business which is undergoing radical change. By using new technology, Frank will be able to shrink the 3300 square metre hydroponic farm to just 330 square metres – and grow the same number of plants at a lower cost.

Utilising a factory rather than greenhouses and LED lights instead of sunlight, Frank can precisely control the amount of light, keep the temperature to a constant 21 degrees and inject CO2 to encourage growth. His seven tiers of plants will produce 10 times as much stock as a conventional greenhouse of the same size. His herbs, salad greens and other vegetables are sweet, tender and utterly delicious.
