In 2005 we, Rowena and Mick Ellis, left Melbourne and our corporate jobs to buy a farm on the outskirts of Mansfield in Victoria’s High Country.
After three years of beef farming we decided to explore what else could be grown in the Mansfield climate on our 200 acre farm.
Capers – a new industry
After much research we decided to grow capers. As this is a very new industry in Australia we learnt about this crop through trial and error before finding success with the Eureka variety of capers. We established Long Lane Capers in 2008.
