Australia’s biggest cucumber farm will be developed in Western Australia as part of a joint venture between traditional owners and an established Australian horticultural company.
Cucumber farmer 4 Ways Fresh Produce has signed an agreement with Indigenous Business Australia and Yamatji Enterprises Limited (YEL), an economic entity of the Yamatji Southern Regional Corporation.
Yamatji Southern was founded after a historic $500 million native title determination and settlement agreement with the WA government in 2020. The partnership between YEL and 4 Ways Fresh will see 4 Ways Fresh’s existing 300 greenhouses, just south of Geraldton, expanded to 600 tunnels. The groups will farm together under the brand Yamatji Fresh Produce.
