Wayne’s father Doug has been farming all his life, as did his father. Wayne joined the farm in 1984 when 24 hectares were in operation.
By the late nineties good prices and demand had shrunk. Wayne’s interest in a new direction started with biological and organic farming in 1998. By 2005 the whole farm was organic but the market was still small. In 2008 Wayne and Anita bought an avocado and plum farm 7 km west of town. Wayne and Anita have noticed people are becoming more aware eating organic food is better for you, as well as the planet.
