Moondarra Blueberries is a family run business located in Gippsland about two hours east of Melbourne, in the beautiful foothills of the Great Dividing Range. They pride themselves on their integrity and quality of product. Everything that is done on the farm and in the business, always takes into account how it affects their customers, their employees, their family, their way of life and the environment.
The 160 acre farm at Moondarra was purchased back in 1976 by Mal Deveson and his young family. Looking for an alternative to beef cattle farming, Mal came across blueberries as a crop that was fairly new to Australia, and would potentially suit the beautiful red soil at Moondarra. In 1979 he bought his first plants and subsequently, Moondarra Blueberries was “born” the following year.
Moondarra Blueberries is now well established and has the reputation for producing the finest certified organic blueberries and as propagators of quality blueberry plants. Today, as Mal steps into a mentoring role, the farm is managed by Mal’s son, Joel, with daughter, Kate, as Business Manager.
Fruit and plant production is managed with the help of a small, but dedicated, employee group – Joel’s partner, Suzy, and good family friend, Adam.
Moondarra Blueberries has propagation greenhouses that enable year round production of both hardwood and softwood cuttings, utilising misting and bottom heat. Plants are grown on for sale in a protected outdoor area.
Moondarra Blueberries are committed to the ongoing development of the blueberry industry and will continue to endeavour to satisfy the needs of the grower with the best cultivars available.
