Meet the Producers #2 | Mount Franklin Organics
Mount Franklin Organics
A small, stand alone solar powered, certified organic produce farm growing a range of heirloom herbs & vegetables for Daylesford and surrounds.
Mount Franklin Organic farm and market garden is nestled on the eastern slopes of Mt Franklin, and is naturally blessed with pure water and rich red, volcanic soil. Farmer Florian drip irrigates the gardens and fruit trees using only passive solar power and does not rely on cool rooms or machine processing to sort and store food.
Florian is an ex chef and his farm is fortunately situated within its own microclimate running up to 3 degrees warmer than many of the other local farms. Florian’s extended growing season provides tomatoes often available as late as August. Last season, black and watermelon radishes, amaranth, red mizuna were part of last summer's planting. This year we are looking forward to including his delicious heirloom tomatoes, beans, cucumbers and fragrant garlic
Local Organic Delivery has been so impressed with the Roma Tomatoes and Cucumbers from Mount Franklin Organics. They have been included in our organic boxes since day one.
