Always willing to have a good go, lend a hand and do his best, Andrew Bulmer typifies a proud Australian farmer, farming approximately 500ha at Lindenow with his parents Bill and Bernadette, and brother Kaine. Growing up on the family’s dairy farm/mixed cropping, he decided to join and specialise in vegetable production.
Of all the crops, Andrew loves lettuce and spinach the most, especially on his plate! “They’re so versatile, healthy and a great accompaniment to any meal”, said Andrew.
Andrew constantly searches for methods of producing reliably replicable good produce through increased sustainability and efficiencies. His networks within the vegetable industry are extensive and in 2014 he was instrumental in organising the East Gippsland Leafy Vegetable Demonstration Day at his family farm. Andrew has previously sat on the Ausveg R&D National Industry Advisory Group and in 2011 he was awarded the Ausveg Young Grower of the Year award.
As Managing Director, he is supported by his wife Amy and his two biggest playful fans, children Rachael and Harvey.
