Something out of the ordinary? Experience the art & science of handcrafted boutique fruit wine...
With a passion for the land and homegrown produce, Timo & Emily Ploschke made a tree change ten years ago and haven't looked back!
Raising three young sons, they own and operate Northern Slopes Plantation on the edge of Mansfield; growing blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. The fruit is used to make an innovative wine style, perfect with grazing & cheese platters, light meals and seafood.
Timo & Emily believe in good old fashioned hard work, combined with science, and it has always been their aim to minimise machinery use. Through plantation design, companion planting, plant spacing and manipulation aided by monitoring, the intervention and application of synthetic products on crops has been kept in check. They hope to further embrace permaculture practices on our farm in the future.
