Our Sponsors

The Holland Festival asks you to support us by supporting our sponsors.

John Berends Implements was established on the 6th October 1966, by John Berends at a weatherboard house in Narre Warren, Victoria, manufacturing grader blades, rippers, car trailers and carryalls. Increased demand required bigger premises and in 1974, the business was moved to Greens Road, Dandenong. In 1978 John Berends Implements moved to its present location in Frankston-Dandenong Road, Dandenong. By this stage the range of machinery had grown considerably. In 1997 after completing a Bachelor of Agricultural Science and working in the vegetable seed industry for several years, John’s son Derrick joined the business as General Manager. Derrick’s wife Meredith brought her skills as an Agricultural and Resource Economist to the business in 1998. In 2006 a further 2000 square metres of factory and warehouse space was added to streamline production. Continued investment in the business is evident with recent additions of welding robots and a high speed plasma cutter. John Berends Implements will continue to provide strong, reliable and price competitive Australian made implements well into the future. With over 50 years experience in the agricultural business, Berends is the benchmark in Australian agricultural machinery.

TaylorM Security – TaylorM Security are big believers that one model or design doesn’t suit all clients. They customise plans to suit each clients specific requirements and budget. What works at one client doesn’t necessarily work for another. TaylorM Security listens to what the client wants not what they want to hear. They are proactive not re-active. No issue or concern is too small to address.

Our wine brand Erlenwein was born from a love of family and wine. It is a family business incorporating our name, Erlenwein, a long history that goes back to the year 1450 in Deutschland (Germany).

The Erlenwein family have been making, blending and sourcing wine for generations. We, Barry and Gail Erlenwein are first generation Erlenwein’s in Australia, with Barry’s father migrating to Australia in 1954 from Austria.

We only sell what we believe is the best wine from Australia’s quality wine regions. Please enjoy this nectar from the gods and rejoice in Erlenwein wine, from our family to yours, a warm "Proost".
