About Us

Harvesting Pumpkin SeedsPepo Farms is a family owned and operated company. We are the first and only producers of pumpkin seeds in Australia and are proud to be a farm to plate company that produces pumpkin seeds for eating and a range of other seeds, nuts, oils and flours.  

Under the Pepo Farms banner, there are now 3 brands:

  • The Australian Pumpkin Seed Company
  • The Artisan Mill
  • Pepo Community Farms

Originally established as "Pepo" in 2002 in South East Queensland, the business later became the Australian Pumpkin Seed Company and relocated to the Ovens Valley in North East Victoria. As the business and product range grew, we introduced The Artisan Mill under the Pepo Farms brand, a traditional oil press and flour mill that is part social enterprise.

Our farm shop in the Ovens Valley is a facility that gives a unique insight into our farming and how we grow, harvest and produce our range of products and provides an educational experience for customers to learn about farming, food and health.

We practice sustainable farming using all organic and biodynamic practices, we are currently in transition to Australian certified organic.

We take great pride in bringing to market healthy, nutritious products for all to enjoy.

 

We work directly with the farmers, they grow for us and we have provided them with a means, they are part of our family. At Pepo Farms, we are building a family farming company. We hope to build the future of growing food in Australia.

Our commitment is to develop a pumpkin seed industry in Australia so that Australian consumers have the choice to buy locally grown, fresh Australian products. Developing the export market is a high priority as it will ensure greater volume, lower costs and a sustainable, profitable crop for local farmers.
