The natural choice for business

Murwillumbah Farmers' Market

When I started my business, I wanted to focus on supporting the farming community and supporting small local farmers. We have so many people who are passionate about growing. You don’t continue farming unless you have a passion for it - because it’s really hard work. People in the Tweed are interested in the food they eat and there is a strong demand for beautifully grown organic food.

There was a time where we saw a drop in farming from younger generations. Now we are seeing some of the younger people return to the farms. They’ve been out and experienced the world and they are coming back as really passionate farmers. We’ve got new farmers bringing different business skills and knowledge back with them and as a result, we’re seeing some really innovative results. It’s a really exciting time to be in the farming industry.
