Located in Laharum, Rosehaven Farms gives visitors an insight into ‘farm life’ through sensory animal experiences. After petting donkeys and feeding alpacas, drop into the store to shop their range of local, handmade products. Owners Pam and David make everything on the farm, including soaps, lotions, beeswax wraps and their famous honey.
The pure, Australian honey is sourced from their 100 beehives and carries distinct flavours and aromas of the Grampians region.
Also located in Laharum is Grampians Olive Co, one of Australia’s oldest olive groves, established back in 1943. It’s family-owned and operated with all olive oil grown, pressed and bottled on site.
Stop by and indulge in a platter featuring a range of estate-produced olive oils, table olives, vinegars, dukkah and honey. Soak in the stunning views and surrounding olive trees – there’s over 20,000 of them! Don’t leave without taking home some of their freshly pressed, Australian made and certified organic extra virgin olive oil and perhaps your own Dukkah to recreate their impressive platters!
