Campo de Flori is Field of Flowers in Italian and this is what is grown on this 52-acre Glen Huon Farm managed by David Peck and Lisa Britzman. This boutique farm and ceramic artistry has bundled the sensory pleasures of the rare spice saffron, fragrant lavender, and olives with bespoke ceramics. Add in a strong ethos of sustainability on this four-season farm and you have a magnet for day trippers looking to experience many of Tasmania’s brand jewels in one spot. The ethos of Campo de Flori is to be self-sufficient while maintaining a balanced ecosystem on the property. Sustainable uses of resources are considered as well as implementing biological farming techniques on the farm. This form of sustainable farming practice not only benefits the environment but delivers top quality farm produce. The farm has spectacular vistas towards snow-capped mountains and overlooks the Glen Huon Valley and Huon River. The farm features a farmgate shop/gallery where visitors can taste their Extra Virgin Olive Oil and lavender tea and purchase their “Delicious” Award-winning saffron products, culinary lavender, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and bespoke lavender and ceramics made on the farm. They grow nine varieties of olives which make up their Farm Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Varieties include; Barnea, Frantoio, Hojiblanca, Jumbo Kalamata, Kalamata, Leccino, Manzanillo, Picual, and UC13A6.
Lisa’s working ceramic studio is next to the farmgate where you can see bespoke ceramic pieces being made.
