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.
Latest News from Mirboo Farm :
OUTSTANDING HARVEST of TURBAN VARIETIES
In mid November we harvested about 22,000 turban garlic bulbs. This is the best harvest in seven years at Mirboo Farm. We now await our harvests of Italian White, Italian Late, Rojo de Castro and Spanish Rojah over the next 6 to 8 weeks.
Walking behind the tractor as we lifted the bulbs was a moving experience – the consistent high quality of bulbs was indeed inspiring. We now need to ‘steward’ this crop though its curing phase and send it on its journey to your kitchen or your garden.
So, hop onto our Order Page or give us a call at Mirboo Farm and we can pack and despatch some outstanding herbicide-free garlic to your table.
To say we had some challenges is an understatement.
WEEKLY TIMES ‘2017 SHINE AWARD’
In late November the Weekly Times announced its 2017 Shine Award results. Kirsten and our daughter Felicity were one of six category winners in these national awards, which recognise outstanding contributions to rural communities by women in regional Australia.
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 2016, 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 . . . much later) at Mirboo Farm. Our 2016/17 crop had its challenges (and hundreds of happy customers) and we are very excited about the late 2017 harvest.
Many thanks to all who have purchased Mirboo Farm garlic. We are taking orders now and are happy to discuss your needs for the year ahead.
