Welcome to Mirboo Farm, to the beauty of South Gippsland and to a superb range of garlic grown free of herbicides.
At Mirboo Farm, Kirsten Jones has taken her passion for horticulture and her commitment to quality Australian-grown produce to cultivate a range of garlic in this outstanding farming land.

GARLIC : SOLD OUT
We have now delivered our 2016 harvest to many happy customers and, unfortunately the SOLD OUT sign is now on the shingle. Like many growers up and down the east coast of Australia, we had a significantly lower yield than normal. For us, this meant the loss of over 40% of our crop due to ‘secondary shooting’ – where the cloves re-shoot and divide late in the growth phase and what looks great in early November is a disaster within 3 weeks!
To say we had some challenges is an understatement.
AWARD WINNING GARLIC – SILVER in 2015 and GOLD in 2016
Our ‘Monaro Purple’ garlic was awarded a Silver Medal in the RASV 2015 Fine Food Awards – being judged against garlic from across the country. In February, our Rojo de Castro and Spanish Roja received Gold Medals and our Foster Purple was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2016 RASV Fine Food Awards. Much excitement (still!) at Mirboo Farm.
Many thanks to all who have purchased Mirboo Farm garlic. We are taking forward orders now and are happy to discuss your needs for the year ahead.
