Who is involved in the farm?
We are a husband and wife team, Adam & Karina Gersbach.
What prompted you to start the farm?
We have worked towards owning our own farm for the last 10 years. We purchased Valley View Farm 3 years ago. We’ve been planning, developing & dreaming for the last 2 years and finally, our dream has become a reality. We both feel so at home on the land, it just feels right.
Growing organic garlic has been a long and hard process of trial and error. We have produced a successful crop of 5 varieties this season and it has been really well received by locals.
We have proudly won 2 silver awards at the 2019 Australian Food Awards.
What do you produce?
We grow organic garlic and are currently planning our market garden. In addition to the farm, we also produce a range of preserves from the garlic; French pickled garlic, Caramelised garlic and onion chutney, Japanese pickled garlic, garlic salts flavoured with organic sage, rosemary & chilli.
Our beautiful Farm Gate Kitchen showcases not only our organic garlic but as much locally produced & grown food (organic where possible) as we can get our hands on!! We serve organic Botero coffee and a huge range of freshly baked cakes (gluten free options). Trading Thursday – Sunday 900am – 300pm.
What are your core business beliefs?
To grow and sell the best quality organic garlic possible. Our Farm Gate Kitchen will be a meeting place for like-minded people to share fresh, zero miles dishes and a place where you can sit back and take in our beautiful farm.
What does it mean to you to be part of the Great Lakes Food Trail?
We love seeing what other farms and businesses are doing in our area and to be part of a farming community. The more local farmers we have, the more self sufficient our local area will become.
