Cedar Hill expands horticultural business into the Mary Valley

Cedar Hill plans to extend its horticultural business to the Mary Valley.

Sunshine Coast company Cedar Hill has expanded its horticultural business into the Mary Valley, signing a development lease with the Newman Government for property in Kadanga.

Cedar Hill will grow native ferns to export around the world at the new property, where construction of a purpose-built shade house to facilitate production of the ferns has begun.

This could provide opportunities for apprenticeships in Sunshine Coast, with the project expected to employ up to 17 people.

“In February we signed the first economic development deal with outdoor education specialist Higher Ground Group, and now I’m pleased to announce that my department has finalised with Cedar Hill a development lease with an option to purchase,” said deputy premier and minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning Jeff Seeney.

Mr Seeney said the company plans to establish a new horticultural enterprise to commercially propagate and cultivate native ferns as a cut foliage product for the domestic and export markets.

“My department has worked with Cedar Hill to include performance milestones as a condition of the lease which must be carried out by the company.”
