Mirboo Farm Garlic has moved. Our planting is now just a little south of the Strzelecki Ranges, on the road to Wilson’s Promontory in South Gippsland (Victoria).
We are now growing our garlic at the Golden Creek Olive Grove, where John and Jackie Courmadias grow superb olives and have embraced our new garlic project. It is a cool climate zone, not dissimilar to parts of northern Tasmania.
After 10 years of growing garlic, our journey of learning continues. We now plant around 40,000 cloves and have close collaborations with neighboring farmers.
Mirboo Farm Garlic may be purchased online or by calling Kirsten (on 0409 040 856). We can also deliver to the Melbourne CBD.
Our garlic is a product of choice at Farmers’ Daughters Restaurant, a farm-to-table venue at 80 Collins St Melbourne, which is inspired by Gippsland. We continue to work with Executive Chef Alejandro Saravia on new and innovative ways to include Gippsland-grown garlic in his interpretations of regional Australian cuisine.
At Mirboo and now at Golden Creek, the kookaburras keep away the snakes . . . and the snorting sounds in the night are attributed to koalas. And life moves at a relaxed pace.
