Husk and Harvest from our Orchard to you.
A great little snack.
A mild spicey mix, try served with drinks, sprinkled over baked potato or cauliflower soup; garnish for any green steamed vegetables (kale, broccoli, beans etc.); with salads or stir-frys. Adds a zest of colour, texture and taste.
Husk & Harvest is a primary producer of walnuts and walnut products. We are situated in Redesdale – in the heart of Victoria on the volcanic uplands between the Campaspe and Coliban rivers as they join to become Lake Eppalock. It’s a lovely place to farm and to live.
We (Hilary and Mark Jankelson) acquired Boonderoo (our farm) at the beginning of 2000. At the time, the decision to plant walnuts here was compelling - Australia was importing the majority of its walnuts from overseas and we could see the opportunity to change that. We set about converting the land - originally a sheep farm - into walnut orchard in 2001.
We now have approximately 10,000 trees on the land in Victoria and in an additional orchard in the Murray Valley (acquired in 2006). From these two properties we supply the wholesale markets, independent retailers and many farmers' markets in Central Victoria.
