L’Azienda Agricola PininAgri di Luca Pininfarina, nasce nel 2016 ponendosi l’obiettivo adoperare pratiche lungimiranti, volte ad ottenere prodotti ortofrutticoli con qualità superiori nel massimo rispetto verso l’ambiente e gli ecosistemi della collina di Moncalieri. In azienda si applica la lotta biologica conservativa, evitando nel modo più assoluto l'impiego di prodotti ampio spettro con l’obbiettivo di mantenere viva l'entomofauna utile. Inoltre si praticano inoculi di consorzi microbici nel terreno al fine di esprimere al massimo le potenzialità intrinseche delle colture in termini di resistenza, resa, gusto e qualità nutraceutiche. The Azienda Agricola PininAgri di Luca Pininfarina was founded in 2016 with the aim of adopting forward-looking practices, aimed at obtaining fruit and vegetables with superior quality with the utmost respect for the environment and ecosystems of the Moncalieri hill. Conservative biological control is applied on the farm, absolutely avoiding the use of broad spectrum products with the aim of keeping the useful entomofauna alive. Furthermore, microbial consortia are inoculated in the soil in order to express the intrinsic potential of the crops in terms of resistance, yield, taste and nutraceutical qualities.
Our palm collecting began some thirty years ago, when we became members of the Palm & Cycad Society of QLD. In 1987, we decided to create a nursery and called it Coast Road Palms, at the time our address was Coast Road so we went with this. A few years ago, the street name was changed to Bennett Springs Drive. We were proud of how we began, many of our old customers would remember the dusty gravel road before we had development around us. We decided to keep our business name and not change with the new street name. Planting began in 1987, even before we built our home. A cyclone fence went up, a bore was sunk, reticulation put down and the planting started. We had a lot of help from friends who volunteered (they probably thought we were crazy at the time), but they never doubted because anyone who knew my husband Lou, knew that he was a determined person who once he set his mind to things, there was no going back. I suppose it was his courage and determination that pulled us through. In 1988/89, we were hit by a severe frost that at the time almost wiped out all our stock. Many nurseries were in the same boat. We kept going, not looking back. At the time, Lou was also working full time at another work place, so he had two full time jobs going. One nightshift and one dayshift. Finally, in 1995 he made a break and decided to work full time in our nursery, by then we had developed a good clientele. Some of our original customers have remained friends and often visit and have a chat about old times and how it all began. Over the following years, we have continued planting and collecting and are still collecting today. We are always interested in something new and rare and know that although it may not grow here in Perth we are always willing to give it a go, after all it is a challenge.

1904 was a landmark year for the industry and for the business which was to become the current-day Blue Diamond Group. In it's earliest 'guise', Blue Diamond originally emerged as the Fruit Export Company in the beautiful island of Guernsey, Channel Islands. The company was created by a group of prominent local businessmen whose family links still feature today. John W. Dorey was appointed manager and his son, Percy, was company secretary. the latter proved to be the driving force of the Fruit Export Company. The company's founders displayed their business skills at an early stage when they acquired a distribution company in the UK with agents scaling the length and breadth of England. This network became the backbone of Fruit Export's success in getting tomatoes to market. A further stroke of ingenuity saw the company buy wicker baskets locally and go on to commission the manufacture of huge numbers of wooden baskets and then tomato trays. Today, Blue Diamond is recognised as a genuine Guernsey success story and continues to be owned and managed on the island with plants still at the heart of the business. Blue Diamond now employs around 3,000 people at its Head Office and 30 garden centres across the UK & Channel Islands.
