Maryton Park so named because of its midway location between Marysville & Buxton (5 kms either way) The farm was originally established some 40 years ago. It became very popular with international tourists, due to the previous owners being German & Danish.” The Danish Coffee Garden” operated during that time. Penni & Tony purchased the property in 2001, previously owning the very successful “Blackberry Cottage Cakes” in Upwey.
Penni & Tony have managed to carry on and rebuild their business after much hardship. They have continued on relentlessly, despite adversity, while Marysville is rebuilt and the fragmented community is once again, as is the area, coming alive.
It is with pride that we can see the garden recovering to its former glory.
Maryton Park is a working farm. Guests are welcome to walk around the farm but must leave gates as they find them. We run Angus Beef with our calving time around September/October, so throughout spring and summer, you can enjoy little calves running and playing in the fields at the back of our cottages.
Maryton also grows their own berries; Californian blackberries and blueberries during the summer months. We make our jam, which is for sale to the public, or you can just enjoy it on your croissant or toast at breakfast.
The ducks roam our gardens or enjoy swimming in the trout stocked lake. The chickens also are free to roam wherever they please and they lay our free-range eggs. You are welcome to fish in our lake or wander down through the paddock to the Steavensons River which runs through our property, so don’t forget your fishing rods. You never know, you might catch a fish or two and like to throw them on the undercover BBQ with everything supplied down by our lake.
