Farmers Markets

We sell our fruit in season (November–April) at the following markets (see below). We sometimes miss markets depending on fruit availability; subscribe to our Weekly Fruit Tips free eNewsletter to stay up-to-date.

As we say in our Sustainability Plan, our marketing policy is:

      “As a priority we sell our fruit locally, ie, in the same water catchment as the fruit is grown”.  

We first supply our most local markets—Wesley Hill at Castlemaine, Castlemaine Farmers Market, and Bendigo Community Farmers Market.

If we have enough fruit we also supply other farmers' markets. We only attend farmers' markets that are accredited by the Victorian Farmers Market Association (VFMA), because this gives you the guarantee that what you buy is produced by the person selling it.

Grow Great Fruit Program

We grow organically, and teach organic growing principles and methods. We’re aware of the changing climate, so the farming methods we use help to create solutions, not add to the problem. We've poured years of experience into our farm-tested Grow Great Fruit program after talking to hundreds of home growers, and figuring out what you need most...information, security, and someone you can trust to help you solve your problems.
