Ellis Familu



Applebox Farm is a small mixed farming business run by the Ellis family, operating from a 40 acre property in Glengarry West (10 minutes North of Traralgon).


Growing our own food, eating well and living lightly on this planet are all things that drive us in our farming pursuits daily. We’ve come a long way since establishing our very first vegetable garden in 1998. It was then that we knew we were passionate about good food but weren’t really sure how it would all unfold.


In 2008, while searching for ways to make our small parcel of land a viable farming enterprise, we discovered an untapped niche market for pastured free range eggs locally. Knowing that diversity is the key to making a small farm operate most effectively, we then set out to introduce more animals and food production systems to make the most from our land and a great way of life for our family.


Our farming pursuits these days are about feeding ourselves good wholesome food and looking after our land. We are slowly learning to read the landscape and are looking forward to introducing more productive systems at home that nurture the soil and grow awesome organic food.
