Victoria - The Garden State

In the middle of the 18th Century vegetable pioneers ventured to Australia, a land of opportunity that had been referred to them by their forfathers of the United Kingdom and Europe.

Arriving in Australia it was not long before these men settled in Victoria as they found the terrain and moderate climate ideal for successful Vegetable Growing.

Since the early 1900's, Victoria has provided many Vegetables to other States.

Early days saw a bulk shipments of Cauliflowers, Cabbage, Carrots, Parsnips, Beetroot, Lettuce, Onions, Rhubarb and other crops sent by Rail to Sydney.

In those days it took 2-3 days before those vegetables were available in Sydney grocers shops.

Today, Victorian produce is available in major markets throughout the world within 24 hours of harvest. Cauliflower, Broccoli, Lettuce and Salad lines, Spring Onions, Radish, Parsley and many other crops are regularly sent to interstate markets

Vegetable Growers in Victoria are proud of their Vegetable Farms, Vegetables and particularly the quality which is always of a high standard.
