”Our goal is to produce top quality strawberries all year round from our two farms in Glass House Mountains and Stanthorpe. But we know that is impossible without a great team of people - come & join us this winter!Brendon & Ashleigh Hoyle and Jon & Bernadine Carmichael
We're two couples who have joined forces to create a year-round strawberry farming business in beautiful south east Queensland
Our farm name comes from the joining of the two couples - Ash from Ashley Hoyle and Bern from Bernie Carmichael
At our Glass House Mountains farm, we grow both organic and conventional strawberries in the Queensland Winter. With our organic berries, we are challenging ourselves to farm cleaner with more sustainable practices and to use more biological control measures for pests and disease

These hours change with the crop and the weather, but here is a guide:
Picking generally starts at 6am but starts earlier in the warmer months, and is usually finished around 2pm.
Packing usually starts around 10am, to about 6pm.
Although we don’t have any accommodation on-site at our Glass House Mountains farm location, there are a number of rental houses in the area where we can link you to an accommodation provider. We do have two farmstay houses in Stanthorpe for our workers.
