FRESH PRODUCE STRAIGHT FROM THE FARM TO YOU
The healthy way to fundraise, Fruits From The Ridge is an Australian Owned and Operated company that grows ( Rocky Creek Farm Gate ) and sources Fruits and Vegetables from Victorian Farmers,( Moonah Ridge, Arrnot’s, Jones Potatoes, just to name a few) and interstate, when our Victorian climates don’t permit. We want you to experience the best that this country has to offer, so let’s get rid of unhealthy fundraising, such as chocolate and cookie drives and encourage a healthier way of life, by selling fruit and Vegetables that are grown here in Australia.
Why should we focus on Healthy Fundraising?

- No GST

- Does not support or advertise unhealthy products in the community.
