Hawkes History

6 generations of respect, knowledge and care

Hawkes hands have grown Victorian fruit and vegetables for more than 100 years. Today, our iconic Kipfler potatoes are in restaurants across Australia. Turning off Boneo Road, the sandy earth drive passes pick ‘n’ ride tour trailers, regeneratively-farmed paddocks, and a 1970s tractor for kids to play on.

Open 8am – 5pm daily, Hawkes Farm Market – once bags of spuds and an honesty box – is now a one-stop shop for the best of local produce.

Victorian Heroes

Hawkes Farm Kitchen

Open every Saturday and Sunday 10am – 3pm, our beautiful French Hawkers Val and Arthur are either preparing Harry’s Mussels from Flinders, hand cutting Hot Chips, or drizzling their vinaigrette maison over another delectable dish.

Check the seasonal menu for when Val and Arthur are serving Hawkes corn or strawberries, farm-made chocolate mousse, soups, smoothies, crepes or croque monsieur – or local heroes Vulcano Gelato.

The Farm Market counter also pours Little Rebel coffee, juices, pies and sweets 7 days a week 8am – 5pm.
