About Us

The CEO Welcomes you to his Farm.Located just 50min South West of Sydney atop a hill which overlooks the northern region of Camden.(Cathrine Field, Cobbity, Oran Park Town Centre, Narellan and as far as the hills of Razorback/Picton) It was here, nearly 40 years ago Vittorio and Julia Marando set upon the land to raise a family and grow fruit and vegetables best suited to Italian style cuisine, the likes that were all so familiar back home. (Calabria, South of Italy). As the years rolled by and their three children grew, so did the farm, taking shape to two main crops, Figs and Prickly Pears. Locals that knew them would come (and still do) buy the fruit and would occasionally sample Julia’s home made treats which were regurlary eaten by the family whilst packing in the shed ready for market delivery early morning. After many requests by regulars wanting to buy Julia’s treats, in 2008 a professional kitchen along side the packing shed was built and production of our gourmet range had begun. All products are hand made with the finest of ingredients and supplied to many quality fruit shops, deli’s and cafe’s across Sydney.
