Farm Gates – Where Farmers Sell Produce Direct
Local fresh produce is in incredible abundance throughout the Eastern Dandenong Ranges due to our great growing conditions, climate and soil. You’ll find berry farms, flower farms, vegetable and plant farms and homemade goods available during various different times of the year.
Buying direct from the farm or growers, where farmers sell produce, has so many benefits. Including freshness, flavour, increased nutrients. Plus you will know exactly where your food has come from and can have more confidence that your produce doesn’t include any nasty’s. Did you also know it reduces your food mileage and the packaging your food comes in? Why not make a visit out to the Hills this week to buy your groceries and you can find out for yourself. We are pretty sure you won’t be disappointed with all the choice!
We think buying organic fresh produce isn’t just a fad or for health nuts it’s for everyone and just better all round.
