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.

Produce

We grow a variety of crops throughout the year. We also grow a selection of produce just for our Warwick Farm customers, these include:

  • leeks
  • celery
  • garlic
  • pumpkin
  • artichokes
  • broad beans
  • cucumbers
  • zucchini
  • corn
  • tomatoes
  • beans
  • capsicum
The Market will re-open 2nd October.

We will be working over the next few weeks to put in place all necessary processes to ensure that going forward the market can continue to operate without closure.

As you all know the case numbers are escalating still and lockdowns are restricting every part of our lives at this stage until Mid-September. This impacts not only you, our customer base but the stallholders as well and we don't want to have to stop again, that is why we are not rushing back.

We ask you to be patient as we work to secure the future of the market.
