Peninsula Fresh Organics (#002)

Once conventional farmers, Wayne and Tash Shields of Peninsula Fresh Organics make a very convincing case for going organic. Wayne is a fifth generation farmer and had experienced problems with unexplained toxins in imported horticultural chemicals which wiped out a complete crop and damaged others. They became certified organic in 2010 and have seen their land come back into balance with frogs, snakes and ducks returning to their Mornington Peninsula property. The Shields grow around 40 lines, including heirloom and heritage vegetables, contemporary hybrids and some vegetables which vanished off most supermarket shelves many years ago but which can be found in the Shield’s rustic farmgate shop.

Benton Rise Farm (#021)

This little patch of paradise in Tuerong, has been meticulously created by the previous owners from the overgrown paddocks into the glorious farm we have today. This is a family lifestyle choice we have made, where we know we can bring up our children in a fantastic community, place food on the table that we know the origins of – and enjoy the lifestyle the area provides.

Stock up on what’s ready and in season now!  Feed your family with nothing but the freshest fruits and veggies. And because we only sell what’s in season, we can be sure it will taste great. Quality produce is paramount for us at Benton Rise Farm, we aim to provide you the most cost effective produce on the Mornington Peninsula. Sure, we can’t always be the cheapest (though often we are!) this is purely a situation of ‘scale of economy’, but what we do promise to provide is fresh, high quality goods from our farm. Support your local peninsula producers!
