What do you get when you combine woolly sheep with green tomatoes? No idea? Well jump in the car and visit Simply Tomatoes to find out!
At Simply Tomatoes, Ian and Marilyn Lanyon give you the chance to see what happens when innovation and creativity meet rural enterprise. With a lifetime of farming experience they’ve pretty much seen and done it all and delight in the opportunity to share it with you.
There’s a delicious morning or afternoon tea before a short walking tour to see where and how Simply Tomatoes' products are made. They also manufacture Aussie Wool Quilts which are 100% natural wool bedding. And learn all about Woolly Warmers - Therapeutic Heat Pads that have their own wheat encased in wool to fit various parts of your body.
Meet Cheeky the cockatiel and the gaggle of honking geese as you wander around the beautiful gardens and homestead.
Visiting their farm in Victoria's Loddon Valley also gives you a great little window into how things have changed over the years from good old wheat and sheep to the development of technology and manufacturing including tractors with satellite navigation.
They also offer guided half and full day tours around Boort's hidden treasures.
Discover an amazing Sculpture garden, an eco-friendly boutique olive grove and a great little winery, just to name a few. Please phone for more information and a personalised service or go to the website and click on the "Tourism" tab.
