Pitchford growers are not your average, “no worries” type people. Careful scrutiny goes into every item of produce headed to market with date picked, temperature, and standards of vegetable closely monitored.

Not only does the produce get careful attention, but Pitchfords are relentless in water efficient practices. Great care is given to sustainable agriculture with a rotation programme of Brassica vegetables, non Brassica vegetables and a green manure crop to ensure soil health . An integrated pest management programme is also adopted which protects the beneficial insects and controls the pests and has a low withholding period. Also about 20 ha of native scrub land has been set aside to enhance the sustainability of the property.

Pitchford Produce has achieved HACCP and Freshcare quality accreditation and recently was awarded Platinum Level EnviroVeg accreditation.
