Distribution hub – paddock to plate

Not only do we grow our own delicious produce, we are also one of the major fruit distribution hubs for the region!

We pack and grade fruit such as custard apples, peaches, nectarines, persimmons, and limes for more than 200 farmers.

Tours of the packing shed must be arranged before you visit, so please get in touch with our team.

Sorting the good from the bad

Grading of fruits and vegetables is an important step for farmers once they have harvested their produce.

Our team examine each piece of fruit. We make sure we look at the colour, shape, size, weight, and ripeness, as well as checking for defects or damage.
