After growing the business from the ground up, Goldenfield Growers in Wallacia has been named Produce Grower of the Year at this year’s Sydney Markets Fresh Awards.
Kim Ung, son of Kim Nguon Ung and Sokhom Tok Ung, told the Weekender the family couldn’t believe their business won such a prestigious award.
“We were all really excited and thrilled to have been named Produce Grower of the Year,” he said.
“We couldn’t believe that our hard work is paying off.”
Over 500 independent retailers and growers participated in the awards.
The Ung family have been in the growing business since the early 1990s.
“My dad just enjoys watching the crops grow up and how they grow every day,” Mr Ung said.
“We love being able to have fresh produce and being able to share that around with everyone and providing others with the opportunity to have fresh produce.”
