MEET THE TEAM
A Warm Welcome To Everyone That Loves Garlic!
We would like to introduce ourselves as the new owners of the Tenterfield Creek Organic Farm, Rose and Steve. We feel blessed to have purchased this beautiful organic property established by Dick and Dora Rochford right on the Tenterfield Creek. They have spent many years growing their organic Oriental purple and Russian garlic to perfection. The purple oriental garlic variety we grow today comes out from 114 varieties Dick received from the organic growers association 30 years ago. It was the one variety that loved growing in Tenterfield with it’s sandy loam and the very cold frosty winters. The Russian garlic came to Tenterfield in 1900 and was in the Hartman family for 100 years in Germany before they arrived in Tenterfield. It has been grown here ever since. With the four seasons, pure clean air and fresh Tenterfield Creek water it was the perfect climate to grow the best garlic in the world. We look forward to providing you now and into the future with the high quality, famous Tenterfield Organic Garlic! Rose & Steve.
Rose is also a yoga teacher teaching classes in Tenterfield, enjoying a repose from her busy life of teaching and running regular retreats from her Montville home and studio, as well as throughout Queensland and overseas.
