Our aim is to grow the best quality produce using the least amount of water, fertiliser and chemicals, and we manage this by using a ‘zero waste’ closed-loop irrigation system, as well as Integrated Pest Management. Every bug in nature has its natural predator, so rather than spraying our crops with unnecessary chemicals, we introduce good bugs to prevent or eliminate any bad bugs. The way nature intended. Chemical sprays are only ever used as a last resort, all of which gives us a cleaner, healthier greenhouse and produce.
In our 5,000 sq m greenhouses, beyond the strawberries, you’ll see we grow capsicums and basil commercially (you can even take a tour if you’re part of a group), yielding 100 tonnes of capsicums per year and 35,000 pots of basil.
We also make our own sweet capsicum relish and tomato kasundi, both of which you’ll find available in the farmgate shop and which you can buy here online.
