In this episode I chat to feijoa farmer Sally Hookey from Hinterland Feijoas. I go behind the scenes to discover how she built her successful farm and food tourism business in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
Sally and her partner Peter are the proud owners of the first certified organic feijoa farm in Australia. Each year when the farm gates open, people come from far and wide to get their hands on these delicious feijoas.
A well-regarded ambassador for the region, Sally has won several business awards and offers up lots of tips and advice.
We chat about the challenges and rewards of organic farming, the slow food movement and the business of farming.
Listen to discover more about this delicious South American fruit and the many different ways you can eat it.
