About our farm
Where it all began
The farm commenced operations in Virginia on the Adelaide Plains of South Australia. It all started way back then by growing cauliflower and onions on a 5 acre farm, selling the produce off the back of a truck in the Adelaide Markets, Rundle Street, Adelaide.
As business evolved acreage grew considerably by 695 acres, today having a total of 700 acres of land. Market sales expanded rapidly and land for cultivation became an issue. With the rapid and increasing market demand, the business decided to pursue larger-scale production. To produce the number of varieties necessary and to allow for rotation of crops with a very short harvest cycle.
And so it grows
But still remains family
It was quickly recognised that to keep pace with increasing demand, production techniques and equipment needed to be continually upgraded, a principle that is still adhered to today. To further cope with increasing production and sales, a new facility was built in the year 2000 which included large cool rooms and packaging equipment on the main farm in Virginia. As the operation further expanded, continuous improvements have been made to the growing and processing techniques, packaging and distribution of the company.
The crops are grown and maintained according to best farm practices; harvested according to strict selection criteria; delivered to the packing facility where produce is checked against strict quality standards to be accepted or rejected; processed within the guidelines of quality assurance procedures; and delivered in a timely manner.
The focus on quality and attention to detail in all aspects of production from planting to final delivery are the reasons we are able to cater for customers.
From the beginning we have grown operating outlets out of Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney and sell to major customers throughout Australia and overseas. It still remains a family owned business, with family members being part of the management team.
