Applications: Green Empress has a spicy, peppery taste which is ideal for adding zing to summer salads. This large leaf is also highly decorative and can be used as a base for dramatic entrees.

New Farm Facility

new-farm-facilityFlowerdale Farm is proud to announce the opening of a new farm facility. The state-of-the-art glasshouse facility located south-east of Melbourne is the primary production site for our Micro Salad and Foliette ranges, whilst also producing several key Edible Flower and Microgreen lines.

The 0.5 hectare glasshouse facility uses industry-leading technology and infrastructure to control temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, light and irrigation. With a focus on sustainability, the terraced growing systems also uses considerably less water than traditional irrigation, whilst minimising the need for pesticides.

With the new site now in full production we are seeing a significant improvement in the quality and the shelf life of products. We encourage you to pick up a few punnets and experience the difference yourself.
