Thank you for taking the time to have a nosey around our brand new website!
It's a busy time for us here at Carboor Harvest, we're launching new products, hitting the Melbourne Farmer's Markets and of course, pressing 'go' on this new website!
We thought we'd give you a quick 101 on the Carboor set-up for anyone finding themselves on our site for the first time.
Who are we?
We are a small team of passionate foodies, three of us own the business - Ben, Maxine and Antony. We share the load in caring for the farm, producing the product and attending farmers markets. Maxine is certainly the masterchef though, we owe the delicious results in our products to her!
Where are we?
We are (slowly) planting Australia's largest Hazelnut grove in North East Victoria. Currently our Australian nuts come from the Mount Buffalo farm but farms at Carboor and Edi will be in full production in a couple of years.

Why Not! We believe there is a massive over dependence on meat for supplying the world's protein needs. Livestock farming is a carbon heavy undertaking and in its current form we don't believe it to be sustainable.
Hazelnuts have a beautiful meaty consistency and they are super versatile! As a butter, milk, milled into meal, pressed into oil or simply roasted and eaten as a snack, what can't this little nut do!
So that's a little bit about us, please sign up to our newsletter in the footer of any page on our website or follow us on social media for more info on Carboor Harvest as we (and our hazelnut trees!) grow.
