Beginning in Werribee, Boomaroo grew rapidly and the nursery was moved to a larger site in Lara. Lara boasted its own ‘mini climate’ thanks to the neighbouring You Yangs mountain range that meant the growing environment was ideal.
Known for its distinct gantries, the Lara nursery facility implemented never before used technology and infrastructure to build a leading edge, minimal touch, economically sustainable seedling nursery. Boomaroo will continue to work with leading research and development partners to review technologies that are being established in other industries and how they can be implemented into the Lara operation as the next phase of developments and nursery mechanisation. Boomaroo is committed to continuing to explore cutting edge technologies for the vegetable seedling industry in crop husbandry and monitoring to help revolutionise processes and improve the quality of the plant delivered to our growers.
