Margaret River farm Direct Farm, is just north of Margaret River. Ian, known fondly as “Shorty” has been farming almost his whole life!

Such a wonderful variety including tomatoes – regular, romas & cherries; beans, peas, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflowers (white, purple & green), silverbeet, kale, pumpkin, beetroot, eggplants, capsicum, cabbage, cucumbers… fruits -mainly citrus, strawberries, plums, and (if you’re lucky apricots & nectarines).
