Eden Farms was estab­lished in 1983 in Queens­land at High­fields. Ini­tially a cut flower oper­a­tion using the emerg­ing tech­nol­ogy we now know as ‘hydroponics’.

This excit­ing new tech­nol­ogy offered ben­e­fits in veg­etable pro­duc­tion. Eden Farms imported the first Con­ti­nen­tal Cucum­ber seeds from Europe in 1984. After Green­house tri­als the pro­duce was mar­keted in Queens­land through the Bris­bane Rock­lea Markets.

Eden Farms were the first sup­pli­ers of Con­ti­nen­tal Cucum­ber on the East­ern coast of Australia.

The Con­ti­nen­tal Cucum­ber was an enor­mous suc­cess with Queens­land house holds so Eden Farms con­tin­ued to intro­duce more plants to their oper­a­tion until they out­grew the High­fields loca­tion and moved to their present Hamp­ton location.

Even­tu­ally want­ing to fur­ther expand their grow­ing area to sup­ply good qual­ity Con­ti­nen­tal Cucum­bers year round in 1990 an addi­tional hor­ti­cul­ture oper­a­tion was estab­lished at Moore Park Bundaberg.
