Yan Yean Farm is a fully-functioning, 630-hectare farm. Just four kilometres south of Whittlesea on Plenty Road, this property provides students with a complete farm experience.
Here, Melbourne Polytechnic students learn cattle and sheep production, broad acre farming, pest and weed control, farm maintenance and essential farming activities.
Our Yan Yean farm has modern cattle handling facilities and state-of-the-art tractors with GPS and tillage equipment. Our livestock includes a 270 head beef cattle breeding herd, including Angus and Angus Charolais cross and 200 crossbred ewes for prime lamb production. Melbourne Polytechnic also maintains the Growling Frog Vineyard at the Growling Frog Golf Course located next to our Yan Yean property.
