Jauma Farm is located on unceded Peramangk Country, in Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills. Home to James and Sophie, with kids Danby, Audrey and Archie, the property stretches over 40 acres of hillside land. Growing here is an established cherry orchard with 10 varieties of yummy organic cherries, young grapevines planted in recent years by the Jauma team, and a small family fruit orchard and vegetable garden. Certified Organic with NASSA since 2009, sustainable care for the land, its plant life and soil is at the forefront of our farming practices.
Jauma Wine is handcrafted here on the farm by James Erskine and the Jauma team, in our on site Winery built in 2020. Jauma is a leader of Natural Wine in Australia, creating wines for over a decade with zero additions, preservatives or filtration, using organically grown fruit. Jauma is enjoyed by wine lovers worldwide and we look forward to creating our home grown wine in the coming years.
The heart of life in this place is the community who come to experience nature in all her wonder. We are honoured to welcome people to the farm for our annual cherry picking, music and wine festival, Jaumafest, as well as wine events, music concerts, farm tours, retreats and long lunches.
Many hands make light work, and with help of our wonderful team we are able to get the lists of jobs done, bringing great strength, joy, collaboration and energy to the farm.
Our promise is to tread lightly here, listen and learn with open hearts and minds to how we can make positive change through donation, collaboration, deep listening and unlearning our colonial systems. It is great responsibility to care for land, and we endeavour to leave this place carefully nurtured, replenished and thriving with life.
