Brookfield Farm is a picturesque property nestled under Mt Wellington, overlooking the mouth of the North West Bay River in South East Tasmania. The site is locally renowned for its scenic beauty and fertile plains.
The Hazell family grew up on Brookfield Farm, recollecting convivial past-times of hot summer days exploring and cool winter nights by the fire. The concept of time being lost on adventure, play and nurture.
“Some of my fondest childhood memories belong to Brookfield Farm. Trips with Dad to check on the stock, jumping on haystacks with my cousins, and warm summer days at the creek. Long trail rides on my horse, watching the soaring Wedge tailed eagles overhead, it felt like I was a world away from reality.” – Clare Hazell, Co-Founder of Ello Botanicals
Today, the farm is the site of Essential Oils of Tasmania, who produce unique Tasmanian essential oils and native plant extracts, servicing demand right around the world. The essential oils extracted from Brookfield embody the temperate climate, fertile soils, clean air and purity synonymous with the Tasmanian region.
We acknowledge the traditional owners of Brookfield Farm, the Palawa people, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
The Boronia difference
The secret to Ello Botanicals lies in the uniquely native Australian plant, Boronia. Known for its exotic, rich and fragrant flower, the bloom is extracted in Absolute form to capture its prized fragrance. Essential Oils of Tasmania have been producing Boronia for 30 years and are the sole supplier in Australia. It is the prized cultivar in their portfolio, so much so that they worked with the University of Tasmania's agriculture and plant sciences faculty for more than a decade to extend its yield and consistency.
“We hope our next chapter with Essential Oils of Tasmania will see us cultivate a community, who for generations to come, will too be able to experience the wonder of Brookfield.”
