Grech Farm Trading Pty Ltd
Sixty five years ago Charlie Grech had a dream to start his own farm, growing quality vegetables for the people of Sydney. Today Charlie’s dream is a reality and with the support of four of his sons, his dream continues to grow. Grech Farm Trading P/L is located along the Nepean River, on two properties just outside the township of Camden, and another in Cooma, which, due to the different climate conditions, allows us to grow vegetables all year round. Sadly Charlie has passed away but his family still continue his dream.
We have implemented an Integrated Pest Management Program (IPM). A consultant comes out to our farms every Thursday and checks for bugs. If the count of good bugs is greater than pest bugs we do not apply chemicals to our crops, as the good bugs will destroy the pests. This means we use far fewer chemicals on our produce, which is good for the vegetables and the environment.
We also trade under the Fresh Care banner. We have an annual audit to ensure we keep our farming practices to the highest standard. Some of the audit procedures include water testing, chemical testing, proper employee training and cleanliness of our food packaging area.
We grow a variety of crops throughout the year. We also grow a selection of produce just for our Warwick Farm customers, these include:
- broad beans
