Maravista Farm is a picturesque property in the Noosa Hinterland growing organic and heirloom produce for the Ogilvie Group venues, which include Rickys, Locale Noosa, Wood Fire Grill and Aromas Noosa.
Our property boasts an abundance of fruit trees, a macadamia plantation, several vegetable plots, and a 2.5-acre culinary garden with seedlings and a micro herb nursery.
Maravista is an experimental project with a vision to become a market garden that showcases rare, seasonal edibles to allow the chefs freedom to create.
The Ogilvie Group consists of some of Noosa’s most iconic restaurants including Rickys Restaurant & Bar, Locale Noosa, Wood Fire Grill and Aromas Noosa. Each venue offers their own unique style and experience, as well as a strong focus on utilizing local produce in their seasonal menus.
All Maravista Farm produce is grown under the expert hand of lead farmer Wade Dillon, who has strong focus on efficient production and land regeneration.
All crops are planned a season ahead with considerations on what naturally flourishes at the time, as well as the requests from chefs. Wade and his team are in constant communication with the restaurants. The Group Chefs and farm team regularly meet to discuss the progress of the crops and the standard of weekly deliveries.
Over the past five years, the team leading the development of Maravista Farm have transformed the property into a showpiece of innovation in regards to sustainability.
All produce is grown using compost made from waste sourced from the restaurants, coffee grinds, farm green waste and local brewery grain. Healthy soil is essential for organic produce to flourish and as such no chemical inputs such as herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or fertilizers are used on the culinary garden or citrus grove.
