FARM OF SWEET WATER
Marcus Skipper and Sally Ayre-Smith have been growing certified organic garlic on their farm on the mighty Macleay River’s banks since 2007. They began with a purchase of 100 kilograms of garlic in 2008 and have grown to produce a seven-ton crop annually.
They sold their crop directly to retailers in Sydney for several years before discovering Black Garlic in 2018.
Because black garlic is so nutritious and delectable, they decided to invest in its development and production. They developed a method of making Black Garlic using their own recipe while working with a company in Port Macquarie, ‘The Other Chef’ – owned and operated by Eric and Monica Robinson.
