Cherbourg Enterprises market gardens initiative

 

Overview

Cherbourg Enterprises was established by the Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council to create real revenue and a stronger role in the economy for the surrounding region. Several businesses operate under the umbrella of Cherbourg Enterprises:

The Cherbourg Enterprises market garden initiative produces a wide variety of vegetables for local consumption, but trials have identified five crops that are especially well suited to local conditions: shallots, parsley, chillies, silver beet and lettuce. These are now being grown in commercial quantities and sold under the brand name Cherbourg Fresh. This retail outlet employs 11 full-time staff, offers a home delivery service and supplies regional clubs, wineries, restaurants and food outlets. Cherbourg Fresh also runs cooking demonstrations, diabetes awareness and healthy eating programs.
