Our family has had 6th generations in the fruit and vegetable industry and I can’t wait to introduce it to my 7th generation at home.

I was born into this industry 35 years ago and that’s where I want to stay.Read more
Everyone I know is involved in the fruit and vegetable industry somehow, it’s like it’s in their blood.
I want to do this for as long as possible to support independent South Australian retailers, growers and wholesalers.
The supply chain is important and needs to be protected. We like providing the freshest and tastiest produce available so the community and families can spend time together and enjoy good wholesome produce.
