We aim to continually develop new and exciting baby leaf products that stand out in the market place and to remain innovators in horticulture. Our single most important objective is to provide all our customers with consistency great quality baby leaf all year round.
Our baby leaf is grown in pristine locations in Victoria in rich alluvial soils. All our products are naturally field grown out in the open air. Once harvested, the baby leaves are vacuum cooled on farm to enhance shelf life and are then transported to our processing facility. Our farms operate under the 'Freshcare certification'.
Our processing facility uses state-of-the-art technology with 'triple washing’, ‘air drying tunnels' and 'optical sorting' to ensure the highest quality products comply with the SQF (Safe Quality Foods) and HACCP accreditation.
Our entire system from farms to processing ensures only the most premium baby leaf products reach our consumers in the very best condition – ‘cold, clean and dry’.

Did you know Hussey & Co has the largest solar farm on the Mornington Peninsula?
Hussey & Co is committed to improving sustainability and reducing the company’s carbon footprint. To reduce the environmental impact and the cost of energy use, Hussey & Co initially installed a roof-mounted 99.64kw system. This immediately made a substantial reduction to the energy expenditure.
Given the success of this sustainability initiative, Hussey & Co installed a 505kw ground-mounted system. The solar farm now offsets 100% of the peak daytime energy use, resulting in significant savings in the cost of energy. The solar farm cuts 754 tonnes of carbon emissions, which is the equivalent of taking 161 cars off the road each year.
