our story

At Kalfresh Vegetables we’re passionate about growing healthy, nutritious, fresh vegetables, packed with flavour.

We’re generational farmers who innovate to grow the healthiest, tastiest, nutrient-rich crops we can, with the least impact on the earth.
Kalfresh is a vertically-integrated business, focused on farming, processing and marketing fresh vegetables. We control all stages of the seed to shelf journey.

The business was established in 1992 by father and son, Barry & Robert Hinrichsen.
Their vision was to unite local growers under one brand, market the Fassifern Valley’s produce collectively, and provide customers with a one-stop shop for their produce needs.
Kalfresh is now one of Queensland’s leading vegetable production companies, with interests in five geographically-diverse locations to enable year round supply.

The Kalfresh team of farmers boasts generations of skill and knowledge to ensure the produce available to customers is the best it can be.

FIND US

Our farm and factory base is a 200ha site in the Scenic Rim, at Kalbar on the Cunningham Highway in the fertile Fassifern Valley.

Kalfresh also farms in the Lockyer Valley, Darling Downs, Stanthorpe and in Liston.

We’re in a joint venture with the Jurgens family in Bowen to create Vee Jays-Kalfresh Produce. It’s here on the Whitsunday Coast that we’ve developed a consistently strong winter cropping calendar, a Certified Organics program and a baby capsicum program.

This geographic diversity enables 12-month supply of most crops and provides greater water and weather security.
