The Legend of St Fiacres
St Faro allowed him as much land as he might entrench in one day with a farrow; Fiacres turned up the earth with the point of his staff, topping and uprooting thorns, and weeds. His unwanted fame as one skilled with herbs, healer and holy man, caused disciples to flock to him.
Our passion is – as the legend of Fiacre says – is to turn the earth and produce vegetables that are rich in nutritional value and goodness. He is the patron of Saint of Gardeners.
FARM FRESH PRODUCE
(Fruit ~ Vegetables ~ Condiments ~ Wine)
We are a family owned and operated farm in Gippsland Victoria supplying Farm Fresh
products and a selection of cool climate wines from our own vineyard.
We value simple real foods and make use of traditional family recipes. Our key ingredients are those that come grown on the farm, which contribute a large percentage of our ingredients. Our Sweet Tomato Relish is a prime example – My husband’s Grandma’s recipe – it took 6 months to perfect it the way that he remembered it. Our preserves have no preservatives and no artificial colours. They are shelf stable and once opened, need to be refrigerated.
We love to be creative and are always exploring new recipes. We are always seeking new produce as to what the Farm can grow and then we try and see what we can create.
St Fiacres Farm
A beautiful farm set in the lush green hills of South Gippsland, St Fiacres Farm grows everything from citrus to vegetables. From there, we turn whatever is grown into produce – preserves, concentrated cordials, sauces and chutneys. We have a hand planted vineyard consisting of cool climate reds – Sangiovese, Shiraz, Grenache and Tempranillo.
With a background in food chemistry, Maria puts her skill into excellent use, extracting every drop of goodness and flavour from her produce into their superior homemade products, which are harvested, chopped, cooked, packaged and labelled by hand, at the farm.
The Krooked Row
We are a small single estate Vineyard in West Gippsland, family owned and operated. We work here. We live here. Our hand planted vineyard was established in 2007. We do everything by hand – growing, picking, making and pruning. We rely on mother nature for irrigation and harvest. Each year’s harvest is different. This is a bonus, being small we can control what style of vintage can be produced.
Our wines go with good times, good conversation and good food. We hope you enjoy it. Grown by Farmer Dave, made with the help of Dr. Folk and the rest by the wife – Maria.
Stir Fry – Pork or Chicken with a twist, served with rice or noodles.
Markets & Festivals
We are accredited Victorian Farmers Markets (VFMA) and Regional Farmers Markets (RFM) stallholders. With this accreditation, we can attend other VFMA markets in Melbourne and RFM markets in regional Gippsland.
We have strong ethics in supporting our local region and we have been one of many stall holders to start the beginnings of our successful Warragul Farmers Markets (WFM) in West Gippsland. St Fiacres Farm have also been a loyal stall holder for many years where we have participated in many cooking demonstrations and farm visits.
We also attend local Festivals – The Italian Festa in Mirboo North was the beginning for us. We were invited from the start and have not turned back. Another example is the Gippsland Makers Market in Lardner Park, Warragul.
Exposure to Markets and Festivals allow us to share with people our handcrafted products. This is important to us and we enjoy the feedback and loyal support we receive.
