About Polperro Farm
⁠⁠The Polperro farm spans over multiple fully managed properties in Red Hill. Our philosophy is centred around regenerative farming and building soil life naturally, without chemicals. Using organic and biodynamic principles and farming techniques, the produce we grow is rooted by a deep understanding of the seasons and what grows best in our climatic conditions.

The farm is led by Produce Manager Nick Monaghan an ex chef and pioneer in the development of many Mornington Peninsula ‘Kitchen Gardens’(Flinders Hotel, Ten Minutes by Tractor and RACV Cape Shanck ). He is truly passionate about delivering Polperro’s vision, working towards producing the majority of the restaurants produce, home grown. Nick focus¬es on growing organically and bio dynamically on the estate and surrounding properties, as well as highlighting local farmers with a similar ethos in the region.

About Daniel's Run
"Over 200 different varieties of tomatoes are sown at Daniels Run Heirloom Tomatoes—organically and traditionally grown with love and passion from a family farm in Tyabb."

Cheryl McGaffin and her partner, Tony Clarke, run Daniel’s Run Farm, growing heirlooms on one hectare of their eight-hectare property on the Mornington Peninsula. They plant in fresh soil each year, using a "pottager-style" design with insect-attracting flowers bordering every row of tomatoes. All of their heirloom tomatoes are grown from seed.

As you walk around Cheryl's garden, you’ll be amazed not only at the multitude of varieties she grows, but also her knowledge. As a passionate grower, she can name every one of her plants, tell you when and where the seed was sourced and even tell you a story about each one. Her knowledge about all things tomatoes is remarkable.

About Tuerong Farm
"Heritage, ancient and modern grains. Red wheat, white wheat, khorasan, emmer, spelt, maize and stoneground flour from the Mornington Peninsula."

Tuerong Farm is the only farm on the Peninsula to grow and mill heritage, ancient and modern cereal grains. They have brought back wheat grains from the 1890s and grow their crops without the use of systemic sprays. These ancient grains are believed to combat gluten intolerance.

Jason has developed ancient wheat grains from a small handful of seeds to 1000s of kg. The simplicity of his flour making process makes sense—chemical free stone ground and milled on the day of delivery. The wheat hasn't been sitting in a shed for years, nor is it roller milled, the flour is fresh and packed with flavour and nutrients.
