*** And – with our final harvest sold – that’s a wrap.  Craig and I would love to thank everyone for our garlic journey over the past 7 years however, due to impending retirement and family commitments, we will no longer be growing garlic commercially.

For amazing, organically grown garlic, please contact Adam and Karina at Valley View Farm (Manning Valley) at

Thank you for all your support and wishing everyone an awesome 2019 and into the future.  We will continue with our wine pickled garlic and “Spotty Dog” pastes ranges – keep an eye out for them in a deli near you – and our passion for soil regeneration.

Liz, Craig, Spot, Bindi, Paddy, Badger, Sneaks and the human members of the family

Pokolbin Purple Farm is located in the heart of Australia’s divine Hunter Valley Wine Country. Situated less than two hours from Sydney and an hour from Newcastle, Pokolbin is a spectacular region with an abundance of accommodation, wineries and activities for all ages.

With stunning Pokolbin views, rich Hunter Valley soil and a Shiraz vineyard included it was easy for Elizabeth, with a farming background, to convince Craig to undertake a tree change. With a passion for restoring biodynamic balance to the land, we not only run horses and cattle, and grow our own Shiraz grapes and vegetables, but we also grow organic, hand processed garlic with amazing flavour to tempt the tastebuds of all garlic lovers.
