MEET OUR FAMILY
COOLMUNDA ORGANIC OLIVES
Scorching summers and frosty winters make the perfect olive. They are the exact conditions experienced seasonally at Nunyara, near Inglewood on Queensland’s southern downs. It’s the State’s prime olive growing region for a reason. The right balance of sun, water, aridity and temperature all contribute to the special flavours of their olives. Lake Coolmunda irrigates their crop and gives its name to the products.
Located in southern Queensland, near Allora, Eggcettera is a family owned property headed up by Tim Somes. They are dedicated to sustainable farming practices and looking after their animals. Along with pastured eggs, they also produce lamb and pork.
THE FALLS FARM
The Farm, located near Mapleton Falls on the luscious Sunshine Coast, is run by Ben and Jess. Green-thumbed and versatile parents Christine, David, Peter and Val and a bevy of smiling farmhands have joined the ride, working towards the common goal of growing quality food while increasing biodiversity of a once-neglected piece of land.
THE LIME CAVIAR COMPANY
The Lime Caviar Company, its finger limes and its lime caviar product is the on-going passion of Ian and Margie Douglas. Located in south east Queensland’s stunning Scenic Rim mountains and is a premier grower and supplier of Australia’s native finger limes - the unique and ancient citrus - citrus australasica.
LITTLE ACRE GOURMET MUSHROOMS
Little Acre is Brisbane’s only inner-city mushroom farm. They use the latest technology and proven cultivation techniques so their farm can run reliably with the smallest footprint possible, all year round.
Loop Growers little bio-intensive market garden, just 30km north-west of Brisbane, pumps out a wide range of chemical free, closed-loop fruit and veg that feeds our growing community of households and local businesses. Whats close-looped about it? Glad you asked – they deal with a wide range of cafes, restaurants, bars and brewers who lovingly provide their excess organic materials (yields) to feed the worms at the farm, and we in return, cycle back the material as fresh produce – Loop Closed Baby!
What we put into our bodies is a reflection of the community that surrounds us.
PEAK VEGGIE PATCH
