EARTHCHAT: Pepo Community Farms & Artisan Community Mill

Updated: May 12, 2023

Join David as he chats with Sharan Rivett, Director of Farming R&D at Pepo Farms, about healthy, nutritious pumpkin seeds and her story of the heirloom Styrian Pumpkin that originated in her family's homeland Slovenia.

Operating out of Ovens in NE Victoria, land that used to grow tobacco (bad) is now growing pumpkins (good), but not the ones we are used to!

Sharan will take us through the complexities and successes in creating a new agricultural enterprise in Australia with her husband Jay, and how this also supports the creation of a new social enterprise in the Ovens Valley.

Tune in to BEAM's radio program EarthChat each Friday on Seymour FM at 10am, and repeated on Saturday at 8am.
