After 3 incredible years Tellurian Fruit Gardens is closing it’s doors. The incoming leasees are a top-notch bunch of locals that are donning the orchardist hat. So, expect to see some changes in the comms and some new faces at the market stall but no change in the diversity and quality of the organic stone fruit.

End of season markets

End of season markets

As Autumn draws to a close, Tellurian Fruit Gardens is entering it’s final stage. Sales depending, this week will likely be our last market in Coburg for this season and for TFG as a business. There may be small amounts available in Castlemaine beyond this week. Follow the link below to order one of the last remaining specials boxes of Pink Lady apples or Packham pears. Both will last quite well refrigerated or not – especially the apples.

All work and no play makes Ant a dull boy.

As many of you already know, I have decided to not renew my lease when it expires at the end of this financial year. It was a big decision that I considered over many months while trying to weigh up the pros and cons and unravel the conflicting emotions. I do love big change – things that upheave my life and push me once again out of my comfort zone and into a place of growth and learning. My appetite for the unknown didn’t make the decision any easier but what was very clear was that I found myself unhappy and a big part of that discontent was a lack of balance.
