Westerway Raspberry Farm
The Westerway Raspberry Farm is a business run from the Clark family farm, Lanoma Estate in Tasmania's Derwent Valley.
Raspberries were first planted in the old hop fields in Westerway in 1995 with the plan to supply raspberries to Cascade Fruit Syrup. To service this market, Rob Clark planted one acre of the Willamette raspberry variety, a high yielding, soft berry with a naturally high sugar content.
From humble beginnings, the farm now has over 60 acres of fertile land under raspberry production, owns three state-of-the-art mechanical harvesters imported from the United States, produces over 160 tonnes of raspberries each season and employs over 150 seasonal staff to supply fresh raspberries for the Tasmanian and interstate market.
