Snowy River Black Garlic is owned and operated by Mark Johnstone and Shelly Carroll, our property “Narrambla” is located along the fertile and legendary Snowy River in Far East Gippsland where we live a subsistence lifestyle. Having discovered Black Garlic whilst travelling the couple decided to turn the garlic they were growing into black garlic for their own use and to share amongst friends, demand for their Authentic Black Garlic quickly increased and has now become the major focus for the couple.
Mark is born and breed in Far East Gippsland and has a passion for single origin, local food that is grown with a focus on minimal environmental impact and a desire to once again see quality food being produced on the fertile Snowy River Flats, the place he and his wife Shelly call home.
Shelly qualified as a Naturopath in 1997 and has a long standing interest in foods that can be used medicinally. Like Mark, she has a strong focus on single origin local food that is grown using sustainable farming techniques.
