Andrew Young

Andrew with wife and 2 sons is a vegetable farmer and irrigator from Wemen, Victoria. Andrew’s farm is one of the largest family owned lettuce and salad producers in the Mildura region. Their company Redgold is a major winter supplier for most of  the Salad packing companies in Australia. Crops include various lettuces and baby leaf spinach, chard and rocket which are grown, cooled and dispatched fresh daily from the farm. They grow a variety of green manure and cover crops in summer. Andrew has had an extensive role on advisory committees with the local water authority. He is deeply concerned about the future of farming in his region if urgent action is not taken soon to deal with the causes of climate change.
