About Hart's Farm
Hart’s Farm on Tucks Road, Shoreham, occupies 10 Hectares with Manton’s Creek flowing through. Our farm started its working life as a dairy, the old corrugated iron milking shed is still there, though now renovated and extended. When we bought the property in 1997, beef cattle were happily grazing on the fertile pastures. We eventually converted to growing olives. In 2000, with the help of friends and family, we planted 800 baby olive trees – Frantoio, Leccino & Pendolino, varieties that we thought would do well on the Peninsula. Around 500 more trees followed over the years. These Tuscan varieties make wonderful high polyphenol extra virgin olive oils which have won multiple awards. In 2010 we embarked on our cider journey, & an apple and pear orchard was planted. Our first cider was produced in 2014. We added another few hundred heritage apple cider trees in 2016. Hart’s Farm apple cider is made from traditional English and French apple varieties, & has won multiple awards. Our ciders are naturally fermented and bottle conditioned in a range of styles. Cider, Olive Oil, Olives, some seasonal produce are available at the Farmgate on Saturday and Sunday afternoons as well as public holidays, by appointment or via our online store. (Website)
