Introducing Food & Fibre Gippsland
Snowy River Station comprises of 9 different properties that run from high in the mountains near Dinner Plain (Mt Hotham) and also at McKillops Bridge in the heart of the Snowy River National Park and further down to the entrance at the sea. Our holdings are very unique and all have a special environment which we farm to its best. At Snowy River Station we work with nature and the land using what it has to offer at each location. We run cattle and diverse into any other produce or resource that works for that particular farm. Every farm is different, we don't work against nature - we work with it. This is a very efficient way to farm and it allows us to explore forgotten or unknown crops. We use no chemicals in our production and we always strive for the best produce.
Flavorite have revolutionised the tomato business in Australia. The Nichol and Millis families have ensured that after 45 years, you can now buy top quality, juicy red tomatoes all year round wherever you travel in Australia. With the support of a dedicated network of growers and a few other stalwarts from the Hydroponic Farmers Federation they have taken a cottage industry to a major supermarket category – but they NEVER compromised their idea – to supply regularly, consistently, great tasting red juicy tomatoes, full of flavour, all year round.
