Red Valley is owned by the Inderbitzin family, with Peter Jnr and his wife, Debbie, at the helm. They are proud third generation farmers that hail from Switzerland but have found their home in Australia.
|Their first farm in Lakeland was bought with no irrigation and soon expanded to a second and third property, when the need for access to a sustainable water source became too hard to ignore. After 10 years expanding their property ownership and growing everything from broad acre crops to coffee beans, the idea was raised of growing bananas. Since then Peter and Franziska's business has continued to grow, with 3rd generation Peter Jnr and Debbie now managing the business. Peter and Franziska have managed to create a legacy for their family that they hope will continue for generations to come.||

They wanted to grow their buisness further but with property prices increasing they were forced to seek out new farm land in a new location. When they took a drive up to Lakeland in 1985 and saw the rich red soil, big blocks and flat plains, they decided then and there that this was where their future would be.
