AUSTPARAGUS fresh asparagus produce is estate harvested on the Lucas Brothers' properties, a family farming business producing asparagus for fresh markets and canneries. The Lucas properties are located in Australia's premiere asparagus production district, in Dalmore, on the Northern shore of Westernport Bay, in the State of Victoria.
The initial plantings of asparagus were in 1961 and harvested as white asparagus for a local cannery. During the mid to late 60s, a market developed for green asparagus in Melbourne's Prahan market. The Lucas brand name has been associated with fresh asparagus in Melbourne's fresh markets for 40 years and continues to trade to the present day.
Fresh asparagus exports increased rapidly in the early 1980s. The Lucas family was one of the markets earliest suppliers. While other producers have come and gone, Lucas Brothers have entrenched themselves as a premium supplier of high quality product. They aim to produce the best fresh asparagus products in the world.
