Imagine a picture-perfect area where coastal living and rural living combine and reward you with beautiful views each and every day. An area far enough from the stress of the city, yet close enough to return rapidly if required, that simply forces you to seize the day to relax and reside in the moment.
Positioned inland in between the towns of Mount Martha, Balnarring and Hastings, Tuerong is home to various rich green parks and reserves, making it a best suburban area for young families and people who like to get out and take pleasure in life. The quickly developing town is home to sensational residential or commercial properties that make sure to impress house owners new and established.
I visited wheat farmer Jason Cotter at Tuerong Farm on the Mornington Peninsula, an hour from Melbourne. The Peninsula isn’t known as a wheat-growing area but Jason has successfully trialled many heritage varieties of wheat, and continues to test grains for disease-resistance, yield and utility. What excites me most about what Jason does is that he focuses on the flavour of flour. Flour is mostly thought of as a bulk ingredient, useful but undifferentiated and bland. Flavour is not a consideration. Tuerong Farm’s flour is different: it’s flavour-forward and a true food, not just a substance that you use for baking or bread-making. See tuerongfarm.com.au for more.
Shot on the spur of the moment on my phone – it was just too nice not to capture it in some way! – so please forgive dodgy sound & camerawork!
