From our farm to your fruit bowl or fridge!
Production on the Granite Belt is mostly throughout the Summer months, with our growers supplying Australian households across the Eastern Seaboard with fresh fruit and veggies from October to April (although some produce is grown outside of this window too)!
Once our produce is picked and packed, it is sent to three main destinations including the central wholesale markets, chain store distribution centres and processors. From there, typically within 48 hours of harvesting, our produce is in-store and ready for you to buy!
