Who is Miss Merbein...?

About us…

Miss Merbein is the name of the produce from our farm in Merbein, 10km out of Mildura on the mighty Murray River in Australia.

Mark McCarthy, a 5th generation farmer has been farming all of his life. He tends to our crops which consist of Pistachios, Figs (dried and fresh), Seedless Sun Muscat Grapes, Sultanas, Quinces and Pomegranates. In his spare time he creates beautiful pieces of homewares from farm machinery.

Lisa McCarthy works alongside Mark on the farm with their 2 children Miah and Tilly. She loves good food and enjoys making the fig jam and chocolate covered figs. She looks forwardto creating all sorts of treats yet to surface under the Miss Merbein label.

Mullet and Lala, our dogs keep us entertained while our farm helpers keep everything ticking along…

And now we have not only Merbein to grow our food but also McLaren Vale Orchards. We grow many varieties of Apples, Pears, Stonefruit-including Cherries and some old varieties of Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Apricots, Raspberries and Wine Grapes. Our soil is remineralised with colloidal rock minerals, and we use only organic fertilisers and minimal or no spray. Enjoy the difference in taste and goodness!

 

Where can you find our gorgeous produce…?

We sell when in season, most of the year, at the Willunga Farmers Market or at our fridge door in McLaren Vale. For more information or to order some of our yummy food simply call Mark on 0418 562 919 or 8323 7711
