Our Farm

Finniss River Farm extra virgin olive oil

100% natural product, grown chemical free and without irrigation, harvested and cold pressed same day.

Our small 20 year old grove of classic Tuscan varieties, Frantoia, Leccino and Pendolino, thrives in the temperate climate of the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.

Extra virgin olive oil is a distinctive tasting oil with a completely different chemical composition to other vegetable oils. EVOO is high in healthy fatty acids (oleic acid) and anti-oxidants (primarily oleocanthal), nutrients that have powerful health benefits. There is evidence that eating plenty of extra virgin olive oil reduces the risk of various inflammatory diseases, especially heart disease.

The 2017 season’s oil won bronze medals in both the Adelaide Royal Show and the Fleurieu Food Awards. This was our first year of exhibiting our oil.

Peppercorn Pastures Angus X Wagyu beef

Peppercorn Pastures Angus and Angus X Wagyu cows forage on natural grasslands on the farm where they were born. Their offspring produce better-tasting beef packed with protein, iron and vitamins. Red meat has equal amounts of saturated and mono-unsaturated fat.

We use low stress stock handling techniques. We do not use chemicals in animal or pasture management because we do not need to.

“Look after the land and it will look after you” my great-grandfather said. We practice sustainable land management aiming to improve carbon sequestration, biodiversity and soil water retention.

Peppercorn Pastures pork

 

Happy pigs taste great! Berkshire heritage pork is sweet and succulent with fine marbling. Peppercorn Pastures’ Berkshire pigs are always on the move so that they forage naturally on grass in addition to their hormone-free diet of milled grain and fresh vegetables, served with just a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
