Our Story

Our family farming business is based at Wamuran on the Sunshine Coast in south-east Queensland, in the heart of the Glass House Mountains. We’ve been growing pineapples here since founder Geoff Scurr started producing the fruit in the 1960s.

Our farms produce pineapples, Honey Gold mangoes, strawberries and specialty berries. From remote locations in the Northern Territory to the Sunshine Coast and the high country of southern Queensland, each enjoys distinct climatic growing conditions. Third-party growers also produce our fruit.

Piñata strawberries are grown both in traditional open field beds and under polytunnels where the crop is protected from extreme weather events. Our strawberries are grouped and packed in punnets specially designed to allow them to breathe. Each berry is carefully placed in the punnet to minimise bruising – which means presentation is picture perfect. Each picker has their own trolley that fits neatly inside the rows, providing easy picking and plenty of space for stacking just-picked strawberries.

What is it like to work with us?

I like the variety that you get working for a big farm. There's lots of different jobs you can do. Planting has been really good this year as I am really fast and so with piece rates I have earnt really good money.
