Farming- Lamberts-Produce

Lamberts supports over 50 local growers from Sarina to Charters Towers and up to the Tablelands. 

The reality is that to produce quality fruit and veg, you need to fertilise, prune, pray for good weather, hire an agronomist to do soil and leaf tests (to find out what your crop is lacking so that when the produce is picked it is going to be flavoursome).Then there is correct handling to consider; cooling and temperature will ensure that the produce has a great shelve life and that the consumer has a beautiful product to take home.

Over many years, Lamberts Produce have built up relationships with our growers which ensures that all have an understanding of the quality and freshness our Lamberts customers expect.

One of Lamberts’ long-time friends is a smaller family farm located on the banks of Crystal Creek. It has a sandy loam soil which is great for growing veggies. Hall family Farms is mainly run by Damon (Rowdy) Hall, with his wife and four daughters. In the winter months they produce zucchini, squash, corn and cucumbers, then paw paw, passionfruit, limes and hay throughout the rest of the year.

It is only when talking to Damon that you really understand why he is farming… it’s because he loves it. During the season he is up before dawn, picking and packing his produce and on most days, he will work well into the night. He delivers his produce to Lamberts personally to show off his wares twice a week, then on the weekends he is running hay four hours down south to help out another farmers struggling with the drought.

And that’s what really keeps it interesting here at Lamberts. Every product has a story. It could be where or how it was grown, or it could be how our fresh chicken and beef come in whole and we make all of our specialty lines like Kiev, mignons, sausages, rissoles, smallgoods here in house. It is all a huge team effort between our suppliers and our staff and it really gives our team a great sense of achievement knowing that each and every week, we have created something for ourselves… and most importantly, for our customers.
