Trewhella Farm is a certified Biodynamic property that grows a diverse range of berries, herbs and bushfoods. Located in the picturesque Central Highlands of Victoria (less than ten minutes from Daylesford), the farm has rich red volcanic soil and at 700 metres above sea level, receives excellent rainfall. A small herd of Dexter cattle graze the paddocks, and our happy hens provide fresh eggs available to purchase, when we have excess. A bee hive situated amongst the berries ensures the berry flowers are pollinated, as well as producing a uniquely flavoured honey available from our farm shop.

Dear Customers,

We do not have the resources to run a farm shop with regular hours as our main focus is to harvest all our produce at its optimum flavor.

However, we can offer farm gate sales when we are working in or near shop. The A frame sign is put out on the highway when this is possible.

If you wish to purchase our produce, the most effective means of communication is via email which comes to my mobile phone more easily than phone or text calls. The best reception for you is to stand at our front gate.

The Biodynamic DEMETER method
(as taught by Alex Podolinsky)

The DEMETER Biodynamic method of agriculture is a self-sustaining natural form of farming which does not use chemical or artificial fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides providing a cleaner healthier product with enhanced nutritional and sensory qualities. The Biodynamic method achieves this by enhancing the microbes within the soil. With a growing number of links being found between diet and disease it is becoming increasingly important to know what we are eating and what effects it has on our state of health.



We grow a wide range of berries including raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, loganberries, currants and gooseberries. The berry season begins in December and can last well into May, depending upon conditions. For updates on the upcoming season see our News section. Many of our berries are also made into jams, sauces, vinegars and cordials. We have even been successful in drying our blueberries in our drying unit without the use of chemicals.



Herbalist Liz Burns has been growing a range of medicinal herbs for ten years using hand cultivation, hand processing, natural spring water, stainless steel and cellophane packaging. Fresh herbs can be harvested and packed within a few hours for overnight transport by Express Post.

Liz has a degree in Agriculture, Diploma in Herb Growing, Graduate Diploma in Dietetics and Advanced Diploma in Classical Herbal Medicine, in addition to more than 20 years experience in organic/Bio-Dynamic agriculture. 

Many of the herbs are made into fresh plant tinctures and ointments



In the belief that it is better to grow plants in their natural environment rather than forcing them to adapt to a ‘hostile’ environment, we have been cultivating many plants native to the area. These include native raspberry, Mountain Pepper, native River Mint and native Round-leaf Mint.
