The Eltham Valley Pantry is a delightful combination of an operating Pecan farm, a stylish Cafe in a 100 year old farmhouse and it must be said, Pecan Pie made with fresh Pecans.
Perhaps you’ve never tasted Pecan Pie with fresh Pecans. If that’s the case, then you may be surprised to read the Pie as a top 3 feature.
However, that could be because you’re accustomed to “supermarket Pecans”. Dry, brown, chalky nuts, a mere shadow of the fresh product, imagine autumn hues, soft and moist and sweet.
It may be a disservice to the rest of the Eltham Valley Pantry experience to skip straight to the Pecan Pie, however once experienced, it will not be forgotten.
Owners Matt and Ash have a passion for food and their little piece of paradise. They not only grow Pecans onsite, but have a market garden as well. An outing to “The Pantry” is not only a pleasant drive and a delightful venue, you’ll find the food and gifts on offer there, well worth the journey.
