Description

Phillip and Sheelagh Marshall were dairy farmers in UK before coming to Australia in 1970. They started farming in the Torbay region, near Albany, in early 1971 with beef cattle. They planted asparagus in 1972 and were amongst the first commercial growers of asparagus in WA, starting to pick in 1974. They helped establish the WA Asparagus Growers’ Association in 1986, to assist other growers in the region. They have grown a huge number of different vegetables, fruits and wild flowers over the years, whilst still keeping the beef herd. They are also still growing sweetcorn which began in 1978, as well as raspberries, boysenberries, silvanberries and loganberries, which began in 1993. Founding members of the Albany Farmers Market, they bring produce to the market every week during the growing seasons.
