Margaret River Dried Grapes & Produce
We (my husband and I) have a farm in the Jindong/Vasse locality between Margaret River and Busselton. My husband and I have a joint business partnership – he does the beef, I do the grapes and other fruits we grow. My mother and brother assist me with the packing and produce side of the business.
I grow Red Globe and Crimson Seedless grapes, lemons, mandarins and oranges. I process the grapes and other fruit into jam, chutney, sauces and dry them. Our cows are fed with the reject grapes and I process small bunches and singles that are not suitable to send to market. The grapes are particularly flavoursome which I think is from having employed organic fertilisers and practices the last five years.
We are happy to sell grapes directly to the public or alternatively I have a regular stall at the Margaret River Farmers Market.
