Peos Estate. Manjimup WA, South West WA, Genuinely Southern Forests, Our Philosophy

The locals in the Southern Forests region of Western Australia have known about it for generations. In this gorgeous, pristine part of the world, something magical is going on.  

Maybe it’s the clear, crisp air. Or the extraordinary fertility of the soils. Maybe it’s the 365 growing days a year. Or the purity of the rainfall. Or maybe it’s a combination of all these things. Truth is no-one knows for sure.

But what we do know is this. Every time you bite into an apple, or slice into an avocado, or you’re tempted by a truffle, or any of the other wondrous vegetables, meats, fruits and nuts that are grown in the Southern Forests of Western Australia, you’ll be left in no doubt that the array of fresh local produce simply looks, smells and tastes better.

The Southern Forests produces over 50 different types of fruits and vegetables, truffles and boutique produce, dairy, sheep, pork and cattle farms, as well as award-winning wineries and exceptional culinary experiences.  The Southern Forests region is heavily invested in agriculture, with $230 million of agricultural production coming from the region.

A passionate group of growers and producers in the Southern Forests region of Western Australia believe consumers have the right to genuinely know where their food comes from. They have created the ‘Genuinely Southern Forests’ logo to clearly identify all produce from Manjimup, Pemberton, Northcliffe and Walpole.

The Southern Forests producers believe their pristine environment and cool climate give them a natural advantage.

Genuinely Southern Forests is more than a logo. It is a tool to help consumers make a genuinely informed decision about what they put in their body.
