About YFRESH

VALUES  |  LIFESTYLE  |  ASPIRATIONS

YFRESH is focused on sustainable and responsible food production, farm business resilience, and the role of family farms in building vibrant regional communities. We are Murray River irrigators and natural resource managers.

Farming is a conscious choice that defines us and enables us to be fully immersed in the vulnerability and beauty of the environment and landscape that we farm and live.

The farm provides a lifestyle and sense of purpose that is filled with challenges, personal satisfaction, and a connection to nature.

Murray River water gives life to our farm, provides us with our livelihood, and creates enjoyment and relaxing times houseboating, swimming, fishing, camping, boating, that locals call ‘RiverTime’.

We aspire to continue designing our farming systems and products to be circular and make a meaningful contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a strong focus on Goal 12 Responsible and Sustainable Production, and Goal 12.3 Reduce Food Waste.

We say they taste like a honey apple and look stunning on the tree as they hang like shiny decorations in clusters on the fruiting branches.

The fresh season is likened to fresh cherry season and creates excitement and demand, while value add jujube product can be consumed all year round in cuisines, as snack food, and even in traditional medicines.
