Throughout this COVID-19 crisis, we can’t help but focus on what we’re grateful for. We’re beyond spoilt for choice with amazing farm gates on the Mornington Peninsula. We’re also lucky to have access to fresh produce all year round – even during the current crisis.
Hawkes Farm in Boneo is supplying the goods with delicious high-quality fruit and vegetables now available to order online. Call in to pick up your order or pull up outside the shopfront and give the staff a quick buzz and they’ll be happy to pop it straight into your car. With new 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
Somerville Egg Farm has been supplying farm-fresh produce for 40 years, so it’s got you covered for all your egg needs. Changes to the farm’s shopfront have been made, with card payments preferred, a limit of a dozen eggs for each customer, and a request for customers to please respect social distancing – which is roughly three chickens of space between you and others. You might even stop by when the staff members are having a team meeting in the paddock with the chickens, alpacas, goats, emus and maremma dogs.

It’s local food for local tables.
