Sunshine Coast Director
Rob has been involved in the industry for 14 years as a grower. Originally he worked as a sheep and beef farmer from Warnambool Victoria, but then Rob worked in the IT industry before moving with his family to Imbil to farm avocados.
We love the fruit not just because of their health benefits but also they’re a pleasure to grow and unlike many horticultural products, they can be left on the tree until the time suits rather than be governed by the stage of ripeness. The industry is ideal to be a part of because the Avocado grower community is a cohesive and supportive group to be associated with. I also anticipate “avos” will become a staple in our diets.
