We purchased the farm in 1976, inspired to do something on the land by Louis Bromfield’s book Malabar Farm. I was introduced to blueberry farming at a public meeting in Warragul hosted by the Department of Agriculture where the findings of an overseas research trip into the fruit’s potential in Australia were presented. In 1979 we obtained 600 of the first plants to be released to growers to Australia.
We are a family run artisan pasta business. We make everything by hand using traditional techniques and our Italian family’s recipes. This is how my family has been making pasta, lasagnes and pizzas for years. It’s a dying art that we want to preserve.
