Australia: Snack tomato grower plans to double growing capacity

Nora Valley owner Julian Long built the first 2.2 hectare greenhouse on his farm south of Yandina in 2005.

He maximised the capacity of the Gobberts Rd block in 2014 when he added another 2.2ha greenhouse.

His farm currently sells 1100 tonnes of snacking tomatoes a year, through a contractor into Coles supermarkets.

His company wants to replicate the size of its current greenhouse facilities but on a different block of land, about 10 minutes drive away, on the northern side of Yandina.
