We all know that vegies are the best, especially when they come to you from Hawkes Farm, where the good things grow. This family-owned holding has been in operation since the ‘70s and originally grew carrots and a wide range of vegies before experimenting with different kinds of potatoes.
These days, you can pop by the farmgate store to get farm-fresh vegies, including baby carrots, potatoes, silverbeet, apples, spring onions, kale, onions, beetroot, parsley and more, seven days a week. Why not fill up your fridge with fresh produce that is simply begging to be made into warming soups, hearty stews and spicy curries? Better yet, if you stop by on a weekend, the fryers in the food truck will bring the heat as the waft of thrice-cooked hot chips entices one and all to try delicious Hawkes potatoes in chip form. You can also pick up a barista-made coffee and cake or slice every day.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Hawkes Farm has remained open as usual, but now it also offers an online store. Simply complete your order and submit it before the daily cut-off time, then call in to pick up your order or pull up outside the shopfront, give the staff a quick buzz and they’ll be happy to pop it straight into your car. Hawkes Farm has also collaborated with other Peninsula producers to get the freshest food on your table. This is a great time to support local businesses.
With produce harvested and available daily, Hawkes Farm is open every day from 8am to 5pm, and staff ask that if you do shop in store, please follow all social distancing guidelines. To shop online, go to www.hawkesfarm.com.au/online-store
Local food for local tables – that’s what it’s all about.
