More from Chin Chin Farm
Located in the charming countryside of Riddells Creek, the Chin Chin Farm Gate Shop sells lavender, honey and bushfood products.
Over the summer, we also run Lavender Sensory Farm Experiences. Visitors will be provided with a tour of the lavender field, information about lavender, and background about our organic, regenerative farm – what we do and why we do it. Visitors will then be taken through the five senses and how lavender can satisfy every one of them.
We also run ad-hoc workshops during cooler months incorporating bushfoods.
Keep an eye on What’s On for upcoming farm experiences and workshops.
About Chin Chin Farm
When our family moved from suburban Melbourne to rural Chintin in the East of the Macedon Ranges, we were almost immediately rewarded by seeing our efforts to improve the previously unmanaged land transform into flourishing forests, along with increased diversity of the pastures.
Chin Chin Farm is a mixed farming enterprise with a philosophy that begins by looking after the soil and remediating the land. The resulting lush grass and adjoining native forests work in harmony, ensuring that everything grown on the farm is enhanced with flavour from the ground up.
Our growing flock of Australian White Sheep enjoy the feed that grows from the improved soil prepared for over 15,000 food-grade lavender plants, which in turn, along with the native bushland, nourishes our healthy apiary of honey bees. We are complementing our award winning Lavender Essential Oil by also growing a variety of Australian native bushfoods to cook and distill.
Our family benefits too, by working hard and enjoying our environment and the fruits of our labour. The Chin Chin Farm sheep enjoy a scratch behind the ears and the plants and bees are happy…. and so are the Whiteman Family!
