Welcome to Houston’s Farm

From Seed to Harvest

 

Nestled in the beautiful Coal River Valley of Southern Tasmania, you’ll find Houston’s Farm, a proud grower of fresh baby lettuce and herbs.

Lovingly nurtured, picked and washed these tender leaves form the inspiration for an innovative range of fresh, ready to eat salad products which are enjoyed throughout Australia.

In the 1960s, Maitland and Bunty Houston immigrated to Tasmania from Ireland with their six children. This hardworking, industrious family immediately set about establishing an egg farm to support the family. In the late eighties, the youngest sons, Anthony and Colin Houston made the life-changing decision to switch from eggs to growing lettuce.

Over the years, Houston’s Farm has developed techniques for growing, harvesting and processing their baby leaves resulting in a premium product which is sort after for its quality, flavour and freshness.

Today, Houston’s Farm continues to combine innovation, know-how and good old fashioned hard work in the quest to provide the highest quality, fresh baby salad leaves for foodservice and retail.
