Crofters Fold Estate


Crofters Fold Estate is a micro rose and peony farm and artisanal sparkling wine vineyard located in the heart of the Macedon Ranges' granite country.

Owners Danielle and Ashley farm their florals and vines using 'bee-friendly' farming practices; i.e. they holistically farm from the soil up without using harmful chemicals that can destroy beneficial insects and biodiversity. They sell their perfumed old-world roses and peonies and premium sparkling wine to local hatted restaurants, flower lovers, stylists, florists and freelance floral designers for weddings, elopements, events, private gatherings and styled shoots.

Crofters Fold Estate love to supply their produce locally because it keeps their sparkling-flower-miles down and helps promote and strengthen the benefit of collaboration for small business plus artisanal agribusiness and agritourism in regional communities.

Crofters Fold Estate is only one hour's drive north of Melbourne's CBD - a perfectly beautiful reason to stop and smell the roses.

Order your flowers during harvest season mid-November to March. Farm gate pick-ups strictly by prior order and appointment only. Farmgate flowers sold by the bucket of 50 stems minimum.

Visit the Corfter's Fold Estate website to register your interest in attending a farm tour, gatherings and workshops.
