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.

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.

Hawkes Vegetables (#008)

Richard Hawkes is a huge supporter of agri-tourism, which he first experienced in Canada while completing his agricultural science degree. Hawkes Farm grows a range of vegetables, especially potatoes, and the family opened a farmgate store to sell direct to local people. Richard invited other Boneo growers to supply a wider range of fruit and vegetables, and his market now includes Melbournians who’ll take a trip to the Peninsula to buy freshly picked produce at very low prices. The farm store has also proven to be an excellent testing ground for new products, which the Hawkes family can trial with customers before scaling up for the market.
