Produce in the Macedon Ranges
Rich, volcanic soils, distinct seasons, bountiful water, with plenty of time to watch the garden grow: these are the signatures of the Macedon Ranges and it shows in our produce.
Locality, sustainability, seasonality and unbridled passion for year-round growing practices are attributes personified by our small-scale orchards, vineyards, farmers and producers.
Organic, heirloom and everyday produce is what we do best. Think cherries, zucchinis and beans in summer, rare varieties of mushrooms in autumn, and up to 30 kinds of potatoes and root vegetables in winter.
Biodynamic and organic practices are taken very seriously by the many local food businesses, with ever-evolving techniques. Free-range meats, meat products and organic poultry hail from rare-breed farms, and lovingly handmade specialty cheeses made from cow and goat’s milk steadily receive awards.
Olives also grow particularly well in the region, producing delicious table olives and extra virgin olive oils fit for anyone’s pantry.
You can create your very own food experience in the Macedon Ranges any time of the year by grabbing a basket and timing your journey to coincide with one of the many farmers’ markets that are on every weekend,
Or pop into our dedicated food provedores, where the shelves and fridges are stocked with some of the region’s best food and wine.
