Sustainability Initiatives

We at Peter Schreurs and Sons have always had a passion for the land and a curiosity for how things work, this has led us to understand more about the environment in which we grow our vegetables and how actions that we take effect this environment. By constantly learning and improving we have set about putting in place an environmental and sustainability policy that we are constantly updating, which will ensure long term sustainability in what we do.

Environmental Policy


As responsible custodians of this part of Australia, we believe that our farm should remain healthy and productive not only for the next 20 years, but for the next hundred years and beyond. To achieve this goal we are adopting many nature friendly initiatives in a range of areas.

Soil Enhancement and Protection
We believe that soil is much more than just a medium for holding plants. Our farm practices acknowledge the great contribution of soil micro organisms, and we also take care of minimizing risks of soil erosion.

On-Farm Biodiversity
Practices that promote biodiversity are highly valued by all of us. In particular, we are very committed to planting as many native trees as possible. The native trees we have planted have helped us divide our large farm into smaller sections. This allows us to run our operation as if it were series of small farms.

Water Use Efficiency and Reuse

Water is important to our farm and to other natural ecosystems downstream. We do everything in our power to ensure water does not go to waste.

Pest and Disease Control
We are convinced that natural predators should be the first line of defence against insect pests. To maintain the balance between natural predators and insect pests, we are committed to the correct implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles.

Energy Conservation
We have implemented a number of initiatives to reduce electricity use and fuel consumption at all levels of our operation. We are also adopting measures that will help us reduce and recycle waste materials.
 





Production Methods

For those who are interested in the how and why of what we do on the farm, it is worth having a look at our production methods.
