Hawkes Farm is passionate about providing fresh, seasonal produce to Peninsula people and beyond. The Hawkes family has been farming vegetables for six generations and specialises in growing potatoes, carrots, spring onions, strawberries and corn, while showcasing a range of Peninsula-made products they are proud to be associated with in their farm shop.
Evolving from a shed housing a few spuds and an honesty box to an amazing fresh produce store, you’ll find all their own home-grown paddock to plate produce plus Pure Peninsula Honey, Baker Boys bread, Main Ridge Dairy cheese, Cape Schanck Olive Oil, Mock Red Hill ciders and Red Hill Truffles inside. You’ll also find their famously scrumptious thrice-cooked crispy chips available on weekends from their food truck and cakes and coffee on offer seven days a week. Their Hawkes premium kipflers can be found at many gourmet restaurants on the Peninsula and in Melbourne.
Hawkes Farm opens its gates to the public three times a year in a quest to give guests a glimpse of farm life. Pop on down on January 19 to enjoy a tractor ride, some vegetable picking, food truck treats, a jumping castle and more. This is a great opportunity to give the kids a taste of living on the land while supporting Peninsula growers from the ground up —and it’s a fun day out too. This dedicated to distinction vegetable farm won bronze in the 2018 RACV VTIC Awards for Excellence in Food Tourism and loves letting the public know what it does. Farm tours for kinders, schools and community groups are available on request.
