”There is something just so rewarding about growing something from the earth - its such a good feeling when you see your product in the supermarket with people buying and enjoying your strawberries!Kevin & Chi Tran
Kevin has really started from the ground up - doing the summer strawberry season in Victoria picking and packing, then moving to Queensland to work the winters for seven years. He just loved being outdoors each day and especially appreciated the warm sunny Queensland winter weather.
He grew up working for his parents in their retail business but somehow farming was just in his blood. His first farming venture aged 16 was not exactly successful, but it cemented for him that he didn't want to be stuck inside where he felt trapped. This was the start of his passion and his career as a farmer.
He and wife Chi sold the family home in Melbourne and took a chance moving to Queensland and actually buying the very farm that Kevin had worked on for all those years. Ten years on, Kevin has three farms sites all in the Wamuran basin area.
