  • Woolworths - Seven Fields
    the family business I learnt to drive a tractor at six years old so I was getting yelled at a lot to drive faster or slower or to stop There were no accidents though David Stephens Delite Mandarins have been taking the citrus world by storm In addition to their delicious sweet taste they re grown under netting to avoid hail damage and other pollen sources This results in an almost seedless fruit that s loved by Australians of all ages particularly children Delite Mandarins are an easy and nutritious snack for kids They re perfect for lunch boxes as they re seedless and easy to peel David Stephens Mandarins are in season from July to September Traditionally the trees flower in late August and are harvested in September From the moment they re picked they re handled with extreme care and should appear on Woolworths shelves no more than four days later When choosing Delite Mandarins David says you should look for a firm piece of fruit with a glossy skin And to keep them fresher for longer store them in the fridge When it comes to being inspired David credits his father He never takes people s rubbish and always says it how it is As well as his dad Peter worked closely with a Spanish citrus consultant called John Chevarria for around 15 years David now has three children of his own all under eight Thay love getting involved and being able to ride in the back of the ute And to make sure his kids eat enough fruit and vegetables Peter has a simple solution If you make it a game such as get your kids to choose the fruit and cut it up themselves they re more likely to learn about different varieties than if

  • Woolworths - Siciliano and Sons
    Fresh Magazine Meet Our Growers Growers Stories Send to a friend Print Siciliano and Sons The world is divided into two kinds of people according to Richard Dow Marketing Manager at Siciliano Sons in Victoria Those who love their peaches soft and juicy and those that want them sweet but crunchy he says Thankfully we can have them either way thanks to the large variety of peaches grown on their property in the Swan Hill district around 20 30 varieties that ripen to maturity at different stages of the growing season We let them ripen to maturity before picking them so that you get the best flavour but that means if we get extreme heat we need twice as many people to pick the fruit that morning The warm dry climate and limestone soil in the Murray River region is ideal for growing peaches What started out as a 17 hectare farm in 1954 when it was established by the Siciliano family has now become an impressive 1000 hectare stone fruit business The three Siciliano brothers Tony Bruno and Fred pictured above are all still involved Even our wives are hard at work in the packing shed at this time of year says Fred They re also hands on in the kitchen whipping up jams and delicious desserts I still can t resist good old fashioned peaches soaked in a little alcohol says Fred Swan Hill has a warm and dry climate which enhances the special flavor of peaches The season lasts from late November to early February There are approximately 25 to 30 different varieties of peaches throughout the season Colours vary between each variety Click here for a delicious recipe using fresh peaches Search for more grower stories Share on Facebook Tweet this Bookmark at Delicious Digg this

  • Woolworths - Trandos Hydroponic Growers
    my brothers and I Steve Trandos The Trandos family started farming in Wanneroo WA back in 1939 and is now ushering their fourth generation into the company business They ve been supplying Woolworths with various types of produce for 20 years but have only been growing greenhouse tomatoes for the past 8 years With their large operation it doesn t take longer than 24 hours for tomatoes to get from the vine at Trandos to the shelf at Woolies Steve shared with us a fun fact about tomatoes and their seeds that the Trandos family always chuckle at and share with new employees Tomatoes are the world s most popular fruit and yet their seeds are enormously expensive By weight they actually cost more than gold does Steve Trandos These days Steve explains that the Tomato growing business is a very scientific process High tech diffused glasshouses give farmers complete climate control enabling them to produce crops year round It also lets them use fewer pesticides and no herbicides while allowing more comprehensive water recycling and greater quality control We at THG enjoy the challenge the future brings In 1960 it took one hectare to feed two people in 2025 it will need to feed five In the next 40 years we have to produce the same amount of food that was produced on earth in the last 10 000 Younger generations should recognise how scientific and hi tech farming is these days in order to deliver safer and more consistent produce Steve Trandos Trandos start by growing seedlings and then transplant them onto Rockwool slabs when the plant is close to flowering They then grow for a period of 6 7 weeks at which point the fruit is ready for harvesting 60 90 of the water and fertiliser is recycled Maybe we should delete this part The conditions inside the glasshouses are regulated by their very own weather station and the irrigation network is computer controlled A far cry from when Steve s reminisces about how is grandmother would tell him of how she would water all of her tomato plants with a bucket of water and an empty baked bean can The result of all this technology hard work and passion from Trandos is a fruit Steve is immensely proud of Trandos tomatoes are naturally good for you grown locally in an environmentally sustainable way Nutritionally tomatoes are a great inclusion to your diet They are low in sodium and very low in saturated fat and cholesterol They re a good source of vitamin A E C and K as well as multiple minerals and nutrients like magnesium phosphorus and copper Tomatoes also contain lycopene which helps protect cells from damage and heart disease and is a natural antioxidant that neutralises free radicals Of course Steve believes you should eat tomatoes for their delicious flavour and not just because they re good for you In his mind they are the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity and can

  • Woolworths - Zerella Fresh
    fresh land Zerella Fresh has ensured that Woolworths customers now receive carrots at their peak quality all year round I love the friendly competition that we ve created between the Zerella farm managers for each region to see who can grow the best carrots potatoes onions and pumpkins With the other boys trying to keep up with me I know Woolworths customers can buy Zerella produce with confidence Anthony Plum To Anthony the growing process is very consistent To ensure high levels of organic matter fresh ground is prepared in advance of planting Carrot seeds are planted with cover crops to provide extra protection upon germination Moisture levels and plant nutrition are then constantly monitored to make sure only varieties with the sweetest juiciest taste are grown I continue to be amazed at how such a small carrot seed can grow into a great vegetable so quickly Even while I am out in the paddock I am always enjoying a carrot straight out of the ground My fiancée says that I am lucky that I don t work in a chocolate factory Anthony Plum When the carrots are at their optimal taste they are harvested overnight so that the carrots can be washed packed and sent to the local Woolworths distribution centre within approximately ten hours And as this happens seven days a week 365 days a year customers can always be sure they re receiving the freshest tastiest carrots possible The best advice Anthony has received about growing carrots is to care for them little and often You can t just put a heap of water and fertilizer on one day and leave them to fend for themselves To get the best results you need to be giving a little bit of water fertilizer and care every day The fresh smell of carrots being harvested is amazing I should probably talk to one of those French perfume companies about bottling the smell and selling it Anthony Plum Anthony s advice for the younger generation trying to become farmers is straightforward Simply stick at it don t give up and stay true to what you re passionate about If he wasn t working on a farm the man known in his local community as Carrot says he would be making the world s best pasties with all of the great Zerella vegetables Apparently they taste so good you don t even need sauce He also enjoys spending time with his family camping fishing dabbling in photography and volunteering at a local sporting club Working alongside Anthony at Zerella is a team of farm managers irrigation specialists and agronomists who share Anthony s passion for growing the best fresh produce available Many of these people live in company provided accommodation so that they can monitor and attend to the crops every day of the year It is their life s passion and the source of much friendly but very competitive banter Together with Anthony s carrots the team produces potatoes onions
