Julie’s Fresh Fruit – Delivery Hornsby
Julie’s Fresh Fruit & Vegetables is a family-owned multi-generation small business bringing farm-fresh produce delivered straight to your door.
Julie’s Fresh originated some 30 years ago when Julie’s father, Laurie (or Pop as he is affectionately known by the family), purchased 15 acres of land in Young in the Central West of New South Wales.
Pop soon commenced growing tomatoes and plums as well as other stone fruit and vegetables and started commuting back to Sydney every week to sell his produce directly to the public at Fairfield, Penrith and various other markets.
Soon his daughter Julie joined him and once the farm became too big to allow the weekly commute Laurie handed over the markets to Julie.
From there Julie was joined by her husband Chris and later her son Matthew and the family are now based at Somersby on the New South Wales Central Coast and specialise in selling fresh produce from Pop’s farm as well as other local growers direct to the public at weekly markets at Hornsby, Newcastle, Castle Hill and other seasonal markets.
The advent of the recent coronavirus has bought about a change in direction for the business with some markets closing. As a result, Matt has developed a home delivery business for the fresh produce normally supplied directly to the public at the various markets.
