Meet the growers!

Buy farm fresh cherries!

What better way to celebrate summer and the start of the cherry season than gathering up family friends and visiting a cherry orchard to meet the growers, pick your own cherries or buy farm fresh cherries?

To make it easy, the Victorian Cherry Association has produced the Victorian Cherry Trail brochure which is available for viewing and downloading at

The Victorian Cherry Trail includes 9 cherry orchards and businesses located in four cherry growing regions in Victoria: Upper Goulburn Valley, Yarra Valley & Ranges, Macedon Ranges and Mornington Peninsula.

The Victorian Cherry season begins in most about mid-November and continues through until early February.  Peak season is in the weeks leading up to Christmas, just in time for Christmas!

Delivering consistent export quality... are you nailing it?

Workshop at the Novotel Hotel, 200 Creek Street, Brisbane, Australia

9th October, 2019

Australian horticulture fresh produce has an international reputation for “clean and green”. However, other exporting countries are improving their “clean-green” image, and often have the competitive advantage of lower production costs. To maintain our international consumer demand we could embrace competitive advantages such as delivering “consistently safe and fresh” produce with strong supply chain service and support.

Recent advances in the ‘Internet of Things’ along with, for example, improving real-time monitoring technologies, launches of start-ups offering temperature monitoring services, improving air- and sea-freight temperature-related services, and prediction of fresh produce quality on arrival at the importer offer exciting prospects to optimise our supply chains by coupling cost effective monitoring with decision aid support tools.
