Nericon Farm NSW

Farm 568 is a 95-acre property that was purchased by Albert and Tony Scarfone in 2002. At the time, it was split into 47 acres of wine grapes and 48 acres of citrus. Today, the property is fully drip irrigated and equipped with a variety of machinery.

In recent years, the property has undergone redevelopment, with the wine grapes being removed and replaced by citrus. The redevelopment is expected to be completed by 2024. Currently, the property produces Washington navel oranges, Valencia oranges, and seedless Valencia oranges. Late Lane navels are also in the process of being planted and are expected to come into production in 2-3 years.

In 2011, Albert and Tony opened a packing facility on the property called Nericon Fresh. Initially, they only focused on the domestic market, but in 2016 they started exporting their products. As the export market grew, they invested in a computerized grader to ensure consistent size and weight in their produce. The packing facility has received positive feedback for its high-quality products. The facility is over 2000 square meters and includes a semi-automated net bagging machine and an automatic packing machine that can pack a box every 10 seconds.

Today, Nericon Fresh packs for markets around the world, including China, Korea, Vietnam, India, Japan, and Canada.
