Yarra Farm Fresh is the brainchild of founder, Anita Jackson.
Anita loves all things Yarra Valley and the name ‘Yarra Farm Fresh’, echoes their philosophy of locally grown, fresh, seasonal produce, directly from the farms to you.
Since Anita threw open the doors to the tractor shed for a handful of customers in December 2006, the shop has evolved and grown into the Yarra Valley food mecca that it is today.
They stuck a sign out on the road back then, announcing “Farm Fresh Cherries” and within minutes of the sign going up, we greeted our first customer, Paul. He asked on that first day: ‘what else can you get from the area?’ Well, the rest is history!
You will always find good quality, regional and seasonal produce at Yarra Farm Fresh, with prices that reflect each season’s bounty and the support of their local suppliers.
