When we purchased the property
Apple & Pear orchard was planted
Hart’s Farm is situated on Tucks Road, Shoreham, and occupies 10 Hectares with Manton’s Creek flowing through. Our farm started its working (productive) life as a dairy, the old corrugated iron milking shed is still there, though now renovated and extended.
When we bought the property in 1997, beef cattle were happily grazing on the fertile pastures. We eventually converted to growing olives. In 2000, in one weekend, with the help of friends and family, we planted 800 baby olive trees. 200 more trees followed a year or so later. In 2010 a heritage apple and pear orchard were planted.
Apple Cider Orchard and Olive Grove
Hart’s Farm apple cider is made from traditional English and French apple varieties, they are naturally fermented and bottle conditioned in a range of styles.
Cider, Olive Oil, Olives, Seasonal Produce and Fruit are available at the Farm Gate on Saturday and Sunday afternoons as well as public holidays, by appointment or via our online store.
Our farm also includes an olive grove which boasts over 1300 classic Tuscan varieties of trees; which makes wonderful high polyphenol extra virgin olive oils and have won multiple awards. Our Olive oil is available at selected outlets and restaurants on the Mornington Peninsula and Melbourne.
