From small beginnings as a family-run farm located in the Northern Adelaide Plains, SA, the completion of $17 Million capital upgrades including expanded growing rooms and a built for purpose compost site completed in 2020 have more than doubled capacity and made SA Mushrooms the largest privately owned mushroom farm in SA.
In 22 years, the farm has expanded from six to 50 growing rooms and growing production increased from 2.5 to 55 tonnes per week! That is a whole lot of mushrooms being hand picked every day!
Hi-Tech Fresh’s Virignia farm has been in operation for more than 40 years. The farm grows a variety of lettuce and has also expanded into Asian varieties like bok choy.
While the farm began with only five acres, the business has grown and expanded to now be more than 650 acres! The best part about this business? They’re 100% hydroponic which is 100% sustainable!
