Nectar Farms is rolling out a series of glasshouse projects to become the market-leader in 'Smart Farming', delivering high-yield premium horticulture produce whilst providing modern industrialised agriculture opportunities for regional Australia. Specialising in designing, building and operating high quality technical glasshouses utilising innovative green technology, Nectar Farms will utilise the latest technology available to agriculture to establish a portfolio of farms; growing high margin crops on low grade land, within close proximity to population centres. This Smart Farming approach enables Nectar Farms to maintain a strategic competitive advantage both domestically and for export opportunities.
Responding to the growing lifestyle trend of a ‘greening of the food chain’, Nectar Farms glasshouses reduce the carbon footprint and agricultural land needed in food production. Our glasshouses improve crop yields and profitability, reducing financial and environmental risks. We’re passionate about sustainable and innovative gardening practices that promote community enterprise and local produce.
Our mission is three-fold:
To be the leading protected-cropping horticulture company in Australia - supporting Australian and Asian food security
To promote regional communities through employment, training and innovation
To protect the environment through clean energy, resource conservation and clever planning
