The Wellington Point Farm is one of the very few remaining operational market garden farms in Redland City. Since the 1800’s until the late 1900’s, fruit and vegetable growing was the dominant activity in the Redlands which was widely recognised and celebrated as “Brisbane’s Salad Bowl”.
The vision that led to the new commercial development on the Farm, on the one hand grew out of the economic necessity for a sustainable farming future. The vision was crafted by the desire to produce high quality fruit and vegetables for direct sale to the community, promote a “farm to plate” and the healthy eating philosophy. We also endeavour to provide the opportunity to educate the wider community on the food chain and celebrate, in a modest way, the Redlands farming heritage and visual amenity.
Production on the Wellington Point Farm is seasonal with the most activity in the cooler months of the year where the relatively mild climate and the warm red soil are ideal for the crops grown. The signature crop is strawberries which are picked from late May until October. Tomatoes and a range of other vegetable crops are also grown, all selected to meet the goal of selling all production from the Farm through the Market Hall and Farmhouse Restaurant.
