The heroes of our food are without a doubt, our growers and producers.  We salute you.

Western Growers Fresh is in a prime position to access an outstanding variety of different types of fruits and vegetables, truffles, nuts and dairy, sheep, pig and cattle farms, freshly caught seafood, all within a 300km radius of our shop in Busselton. Shopping here you’ll support over 200 hard working growers, farmers and artisan food producers who make delicious local food.

Did you know that as well as a much wider variety of produce, the South West of WA produces:

  • 70% of Western Australia’s apples, that’s why we’re a healthy bunch.
  • 70% of Australia’s avocados, woohoo, how lucky are we!
  • 90% of Western Australia’s broccoli, go the Vitamin C and potassium!
  • Most of Western Australia’s Marron, delish freshwater crays.
  • 95% of Western Australia’s potatoes, with some tasty new varieties.
  • 100% of tamarillos. YEP, that’s true.
  • 85% of the Southern Hemisphere’s black truffles. Bet you didn’t know that!
  • Lots and lots of happy free range cattle, pigs, sheep, goats.
  • High quality milk and cream which is also made into delicious cheese and ice-cream
  • Fresh unpolluted fish in our clean Indian Ocean waters.

So, if we are cut off from the rest of the world, we’d be just fine here. I didn’t tell you that we also have amazing wine, beer and spirits made locally.  We really would be just fine!
