Jamie’s family has been farming in the Bowen region for more than 100 years and he spent much of his childhood helping his parents on the family tomato, sugarcane and beef farm.
Jamie developed a strong connection to the soil and has always wanted to pursue farming professionally. He studied at the University of Queensland Gatton, where he met his wife Melita. Together Jamie and Melita have grown the business to where it is today.
Jamie strives to produce consistent, high-quality crops with the least environmental impact possible.
Melita is a 4th generation farmer. She grew up on a potato and sugarcane farm in Maryborough and studied a Bachelor of Applied Science in Horticultural Technology at the Univeristy of Queensland, where she met Jamie.
Melita also has a Diploma in Agribusiness management and is focused on growing environmentally-friendyfoodsafe produce.
Melita was involved in developing the Freshcare Environmental Management system and hers was a pilot farm in this system. She is trained in HACCP, SQF and Freshcare Quality Systems.
