Leppington Valley Farm is now open

Every Saturday & Sunday while season lasts! (February to April)

Located just 50min South West of Sydney atop a hill which overlooks the northern region of Camden. (Catherine Field, Cobbitty, Oran Park, Narellan & as far as the hills of Razorback/Picton)

It was here some 30 years ago Vittorio and Julia Marando set upon the land to raise a family and grow fruit and vegetables best suited to Italian style cuisine, the likes that were all so familiar back home. (Calabria, South of Italy)

As the years rolled by & their three children grew, (Emanuela, Rocco and Esmeralda) so did the farm. Taking shape to two main crops, Figs & Prickly Pears.

Locals that new us would come (and still do) to buy freshly picked Figs or prickly pears and would occasionally sample Mum’s home made treats, which were regularly eaten by the family as the fruit was packed in the shed ready for morning market.

After many requests by regulars wanting to buy Mum’s treats, in 2008 a professional kitchen along side the packing shed was built and production of our gourmet range had begun. Today all products are still being hand made and supplied to many quality fruit shop's and delicatessens across Sydney.

Fresh Figs & Prickly Pears!

Comencing Sat the 29th January 2012 the gates at Leppington Valley Farm will be open to the public!
