The property operated for many decades as a potato growing farm. Diversification occurred over time. Beef cattle breeding and more recently cattle fattening has been added. More sophisticated potato/onion packing and grading plant has been installed for efficiency in the wholesale division. This is the only fruit and vegetable wholesaler located on the Atherton Tablelands.
There has always been ‘farm gate’ sales to the public. In 2016 the range of fruit and vegetables stocked was widened to tap into the slow food / low carbon miles movements. This is your GUARANTEED year round INCOME. Can be easily be run by mum and the kids. It’s growing organically with road signs, word of mouth and the facebook following, which increases weekly. Sales value and customer numbers are increasing month on month with no outside advertising costs or rent. Other products can be added to the range.
