FRUIT & VEGETABLES TO YOUR DOOR, WITH PRIDE
The business started as The Onion Vegie Place,
with a loyal “drop-in” customer base.
The Noble family have moved strategically to providing truly fresh delivered
produce directly to the consumer, whether this be a commercial operation
or to an individual consumer in their local region.
We have upgraded our current marketing format,
& building an online presence under the new brand “Growlink”
We wish to embrace the essence of our business in this brand.
It is one of which many years of cultivation has gone into,
we plant, grow & harvest our crops as well as distributing crops
from other reputable fruit & vegetable growers.
Field to Fork, Paddock to Plate, whatever the label, this business
has a home-grown family feel to it, & is one of the longest surviving businesses
in the same location in this area.
It is one of soil & toil, of machinery both old & new, of animals,
particularly cats, as welcome as the stream of customers.
We are offering our loyal customers real grower direct pricing.
Once you have tried our produce there’s no going back.
It’s the freshest, tastiest, & most crisp you will ever have,
you will be a loyal customer!
Buying direct from local growers gives you access to truly fresh,
high quality produce at competitive prices & in turn,
you can strengthen the interconnectedness with the farming community
which helps make local people who are passionate
about the important role food plays in a healthy, functioning society.
Why source your food from a long way away, when you can get local food,
of better quality & freshness?
Local food systems empower people to make informed choices
with full confidence in where there food has come from.
Growlink's enduring theme of Zero Harm across our many activities
is not just a slogan, it is a bottom line & a way of life.
We keep other people safe through our expertise
& we will keep our people safe at
all times - safety is not expensive, it is priceless & not negotiable.
