Balmattum Garlic – Our Story so far

Welcome!

Our first blog post, it’s exciting to be able to share our story with you right from the beginning. Our farm is located in Balmattum a stones throw away from the country town of Euroa and just off the Hume Hwy.

I purchased the land in December 2018, a humble 36 Ha / 88 Acres and we planted our first garlic crop in April 2019.

As far as agricultural/horticultural experience goes I would say I’m a novice. I have had a few years experience on a sheep farm but this is a totally new ball game. I would have to say though the best thing is that I’m learning as i go and while challenges are always presenting themselves, I feel such a sense of achievement in overcoming them.

This isn’t easy but i never thought it would be, I’m running a farm on my own ( with some added help from my parents and family) while also parenting on my own and that is a juggling act to say the least.

This is a dream that I am living everyday and I could not be more grateful
