Eldorado Olive Oil
Frances Cecil Farm
We are a teeny tiny flower farm situated on the land of the Bpangerang people (Wangaratta). Our farm utilises a no-till, organic approach to growing. Soil health and regeneration are a heavy focus at our farm (which is essentially fancy speak for leaving soil in a better state than we found it).
We sell our flowers directly from the farm through a seasonal bouquet subscription, farmers markets and are a stockist for select local florists. Our bright pink little flower cart also pops up outside our farmgate from time to time.
Gamila at Beechworth
Gamila is a 12 acre farm in Beechworth specialising in growing table olives and saffron.
Saffron growing is half art, half science and a little dose of luck. It is generally agreed in all the traditional saffron countries, Iran, Spain, Kashmir, that some families have the knack and some don’t. I’m hoping we are a family with the knack; coming into our ninth season I think we might just be.
If you are looking for an all-natural product free from unnecessary food additives then our smallgoods are for you! We do not use a chemical sodium nitrite (250) in the curing process, replacing all commonly used chemical ingredients with natural alternatives so to eliminate any E numbers. At Gamze Smokehouse we believe in using locally grown ingredients, low food miles and making everything by hand in small batches.
Heirloom Naturally specialises in growing old fashioned, nutrient dense vegetables and microgreens that not only taste great but are visually stunning too. Nurtured by hand from heirloom seed, grown in the field utilising organic principles and hand harvested to order, this is how fresh, regional produce really tastes.

Summers’ offering of tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers and new s– you will find the satisfaction of all your fresh vegetable yearnings growing just five minutes out of Wangaratta at Herry’s Harvest.
We are a small farm where people-power and natural methods of food production mingle with a small-economy paradigm in order to raise up nourishing crops for local distribution at a fair price.
Homemade by Annie
Homemade by Annie is my small business that started over 7 years ago. Living on 5 acres in North East Victoria the potential to grow my ingredients and fulfil my own garden grown needs has led to where I am today. My garden is constantly expanding with the support of my Husband and Family! I grow whatever I can and anything I can’t (or haven’t planned yet) I source from as close to home as possible.
Joya Fine Foods
The joy and smiles on my family and friends’ faces, taking obvious pleasure in my little handmade morish delights, is where it all started. With my Sicilian heritage close to my heart and passion for cooking great food, I took the plunge to turn a dream and 30+ years of experience into Joya.

Michel Renoux grew up in the small village of Saint-Sulpice-la-Foret in the heart of Brittany’s cider country. Michel grows his own varieties of apples and hand crafts his vinegars in his cellar in Stanley which houses rows of 1000 litre tanks of cider being transformed into vinegar by the ‘mother’ which is a jelly like mass that floats on top of the cider. It consists of a thick web of acetic acid bacteria which protects the vinegar below from oxidising, creating a beautifully sharp vinegar with surprising sweetness
Michel’s vinegars range from apple cider vinegar to pommo which is a darker, sweeter vinegar made from caramelised apples and then a much darker almost black vinegar called l’aigre-doux which is deliberately burnt turning the sugar of the apples black and creating a distinct sweet and sour taste which he explains is not appealing to look at but has a fantastic flavour.

Our handmade pasta originated from the rustic traditions of Valli Del Pasubio, a region of Vicenza in Northern Italy, homeland of my mother Adele who came to Australia in 1950. Handmade at our property, situated at the foot of Paradise Falls in the small hamlet of Cheshunt, in the King Valley wine region of North East Victoria. Our pasta is made using only natural ingredients, whole free range eggs and durum wheat flour, proudly containing no artificial preservatitives, colours or flavouring. It is hung and allowed to dry naturally, giving it a longer shelf life.

The Peaks Cheese
Our goal is simple: To make beautiful cheese from the highest quality local milk. Both our cows and goats milks are sourced from a single small organic farm in the Kiewa Valley, traditional dairy country amongst the most sustainable in Australia due to its high rainfall and quality soil. Single source milk means minimal processing and maximum freshness for us – attributes fundamental to producing quality cheese.
Our cheeses are manufactured by hand using traditional methods then matured in our cellars. Like all fermented foods, cheese is a living thing and, as such, our focus is on providing environments where specific microbes can create desirable flavors and textures.
Warby Range Citrus
Warby Range Citrus is a 4th Generation Citrus Farm located in the Warby Ranges, South Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia. The Great Grandparents planted the orange, lemon and grapefruit trees over 100 years ago, and always ran the orchards organically, despite organic certification only being formally applied for and granted in more recent years.
All family members are involved in the different aspects of the business whether we are rearing queen bees, harvesting honey, producing beeswax candles or Mead. On market days it is all hands on deck and the Grandchildren often get involved too.
Bees have taught us to be a close family, to work harmoniously and productively to meet our collective goals. They have taught us patience, provided reward in good seasons and offered solace in hard years. Our bees are the greatest teachers in our lives and a daily link to the environment in which we live.
Woodland Gourmet Mushrooms
Amongst the foot hills of Victorias’ High country, yet still in the renowned Milawa Gourmet Region & settled snugly in the picturesque Carboor valley, is Woodland Gourmet Mushrooms. Established in 2018.
Owned & farmed by Glen & Anthea Mitchell, we are a small scale mushroom farm, specializing in gourmet and exotic varieties. We are passionate about sustainability and regenerative farming practices, about localizing food networks, minimising food mileage and strengthening our local economy.
Our blueberry plants were first planted in 1976 by Laurel and Kevin Croucher in the beautiful high country of North-East Victoria at Whitlands. At the time planting blueberries was the ‘new fad’ and many other people put them in too, but over time we found our cool climate and mild summers meant that our berries ripened later and had a superior flavour, thus we are now entering our fourth decade as premium blueberry growers.
In season from January to April.
