Macadamias & Avocados
Macadamias have been a recent addition to our farming enterprise, with initial plantings in 2005. As young trees who have not yet reached full production, they have plenty of potential yet to be realised.
Again quality of nut produced is important to our business, with our farm being presented the following Awards in 2012:
- 2nd place Nut In Shell 10 – 20 tonne category
(19.2t, 38.9% crack out, 0.9% rejects)
- Zero Rejects Award – total amount 740kg
Our avocado orchard has been established for over 30 years, now growing only the Hass variety with harvest from May to August each year.
Once fruit is harvested it is then sent to Natures Fruit Company.
Our farming production practices have been recognised over the years with fruit winning various awards in the Brisbane Agricultural Show, Sydney Royal Easter Show and also winning the Natures Fruit Company, Natures Champion Medium Grower Award twice.
