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 ans what grows best in our climatic conditions. The farm is led by Produce Manager Nick Monaghan an ex chef and pioneer in the developement of many Mornington Peninsula 'Kitchen Gardens' (Flinders Hotel, Ten Minutes by Tractor and RACV Cape Schanck). He is truly passionate about delievering Polperro's vision, working towards producing the majority of the restarants produce, home grown. Nick focuses 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 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 the one hectre of their eight - hectare property on the Mornington Peninsula. They plant in fresh soil each year, using a "pottager-style" design with insect - attractibng 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 seeds are sourced and event tell you a story abour each one. Her knowledge about all things tomatoes is remarkable.
