Situated in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula, at Currency Creek, you will find the property of Matchett Productions. Vicki Matchett, originally from New Zealand, first developed her love of food when she was about seven as she knelt on a stool to make sandwiches in the canteen where her grandmother was an industrial caterer. Being educated at Woodford House in Hawkes Bay, gave her a taste of rural life and, upon leaving school, Vicki studied agriculture. From there she traveled extensively throughout Europe and Africa.
Vicki, a qualified chef with 30+ years in the Industry, is a renowned foodie and has had a high-profile involvement in the development of food networks in South Australia. Vicki was the founding member of "Flavour SA" – Australia’s first food network - now "Food South Australia". She has completed the Governor’s Leadership Foundation Scholarship in 2000 and is the 2016 recipient of the Food & Beverage Development Fund Scholarship. Vicki also sits on the Fleurieu Food Board. With extensive industry know how, Vicki considers herself more of a Gourmet Farmer these days living off her magnificent Southern Fleurieu Peninsula property, drawing much inspiration from its unique location.
We love Matchett's Chili Jam and Olive oil. Add some of the award winning crackers as well to help create a gift box from the Fleurieu Peninsula. All products come directly from the farm to your plate. Bottling and packaging is all done on site right here on the Fleurieu.
