Hello + Welcome

We are Danielle and Ash, artisanal flower farmers, vignerons and lodge-keepers at Crofters Fold Estate.

While Danielle comes from a sixth-generation farming family whose maternal and paternal ancestors first settled in the pastoral lands of the Macedon Ranges in the 1800s, Ash’s family is from Ballarat’s beautiful gold country.

Growing up on the land, inspired by stories of our hardworking family heritage, we bought our small holding back in 2012 and set to work rehabilitating a run-down sheep grazing farm with a small plot of Pinot Noir grapes, some pretty cute sheep and loads of potential.

We feel lucky to be surrounded by authentic folks who share our joie de vivre, a love of the natural world, a passion for learning and growing great food + wine + florals.

Danielle + Ashley
