Our HistoryOur History
 

Seven Fields is a 100% Australian, family owned company that grows, packs, and markets premium fresh produce, including citrus, mangoes and wine grapes. In addition to managing our own properties, we also provide management services to large scale vineyards.

The company was originally part of a financial services group who planted a vineyard in 1995 that Seven Fields still manages today. In 2010 the Byllaardt and McMahon families acquired the business and have set about growing the capabilities in the three primary areas of growing, packing and logistics. Having full control over a vertically integrated supply chain means we can be confident about the quality of what we produce and our ability to meet our customers' requirements. As a result of this level of control, we have been able to build strong brands both domestically and internationally with a customer base that is continuously expanding.

Seven Fields currently owns and manages four citrus properties in the Sunraysia region, Victoria, growing over 450 hectares of produce, with more land being planted. We also own a significant mango and citrus production business in the Northern Territory. To support our growing operations, we have a large packing shed in Katherine which packs our mangoes and northern citrus; and in Sunraysia we have a state of the art citrus packing facility which was first opened ahead of the 2013 season.

Our Brisbane office is conveniently located between our Northern and Southern production areas and houses the finance department, with our marketing team relocating to Melbourne in 2011 in order to be closer to our citrus farms and major domestic customer base. In 2012 the operations team moved into our Sunwest Packing Facility in Red Cliffs (near Mildura), Victoria from which it oversees management in each of our growing regions.

In late 2016, we announced the acquisition of the Seven Fields and Abbotsleigh Citrus businesses by Nutrano Produce Group.
