At our farm in Deans Marsh we grow chillis from around the world and create a range of award winning sauces, jams, oils, salts, pickles and chutneys. Our heats range from mild to extreme, so there’s something for everyone. All our chillis are grown organically and our products are all natural. No numbers here.
AX Protein & Health Bars, Bean to Bar Chocolates, and other nutritionally enhanced snacks and meals are produced with absolute quality and enjoyability in mind. Each protein bar is made with an almost entirely organic array of ingredients combined carefully to give a snack which is soft, doughy, cakey and enjoyable. Flavoured and sweetened with absolutely natural produce. Each chocolate is sourced ethically directly from specific plantations in Australia, The Solomon’s and Peru to provide premium beans ground freshly inhouse with additional nutritional support from Collagen carefully laced in.
In these unique times, uniqueness is a new form of a focal point within AX Foods, and we even offer the choice to have a snack customised to your desires and dreams.

The East Otway Landcare group was formed when members of the local community wanted to be involved in “on-ground” works. They were concerned about environmental issues that they could see in the Deans Marsh, Pennyroyal and Bambra areas.
In 1993 two progressive trees groups in the Otway region, got together and applied for a Federal grant to set up a Farm Forestry project in the area. We could see the need for trees for a variety of reasons – so why not incorporate commercial trees in our landcare projects. Our application was successful and the Otway Agroforestry Network was born.
