Welcome to Weyhill FarmWe started out planting a few bulbs I found for sale on the counter at a nursery. It grew well, like just about everything we plant in our super-fertile soil. So we planted more the next year. Then more and more. We've had a few disasters along the way. And we're constantly learning. There was very little information around in Australia when we started out, so there was a lot trial and loads of error. We've planted too close and got rust, put mulch on too thick and ended up with slippery skin, picked too early, left it too late, raged at the lack of rain, raged at the hail but in the end, we always get a crop, and it's very satisfying.
Our first ever farmers' market was at Churchill Island. An idyllic setting. We took our 1978 F100 truck full of garlic, and we were full of optimism. We sold out and thought this might actually work.
Fast forward to today and we are so thrilled to have customers in Kalgoorlie, Burnie, Townsville and all over the country. We started making a range of garlic salts and granules as a way to preserve our garlic. My grandparents came from the Ukraine and used to preserve food in salt, so we experimented with a range of garlic salts using herbs and ingredients we grow, and then tested them out on our farmers' market customers. They were a hit.
