Fruit'n'veg Sam keeps trucking along
THOSE who frequently visit the Warwick Pig and Calf Sale may have noticed a change at Sam the Fruit and Veggie Man's stall.
Sam Sorbello has been operating his fruit and vegetable stall at the Warwick Pig and Calf Sale for more than a decade, but has always transported his fruit to Warwick from Severnlea via a Holden one-tonne ute and trailer.
Now, he has an eight-tonne truck to transport his products to the Pig and Calf Sale.
"I use it for the PCYC Markets in Toowoomba," Mr Sorbello said.
"I've always wanted to use the truck to bring my products here but I wasn't sure if it would fit in here or if it was allowed.
"I asked management and they said it was fine so I've started using it."
Mr Sorbello said the truck would allow him to bring more products to the sale.
"The truck's made everything 50% easier," he said.
"Now I can bring more variety to the sale.
"I've now got every variety of stone fruit as well as grapes, apples, mangoes and greens."
Mr Sorbello said the recent rain had been good for his fruit.
"All the stone fruits are in season right now and at the end of January, apples will start coming into a new season.
"We still need more rain. Another 12 inches over a few weeks would be nice."
