PepperGreen Farm

PepperGreen Farm – where food & heritage collide

The majority of the current PepperGreen Farm site was originally a Chinese market garden until the 1950’s, then in later years a plant nursery. The recent discovery of a Chinese brick making kiln dating from 1859, has helped to retain the rich Chinese heritage of the site.

Now a community and visitor precinct for social enterprise incorporating nursery, horticulture, environmental education, artisan studios and heritage awareness.
