I enjoy growing anything. You get a nice product and you can provide people with the opportunity to learn life skills, have new experiences and earn money that can change a person or their families life.

Our Story

Sunrise is a family farm run and operated by Laura and husband, their two daughters, two sons and daughter in-law. With 10 young grandchildren it is a real family affair.

It all started with Laura's grandmother and parents who started growing strawberries around 60 years ago. Laura bought a property with her husband in 1984 they expanded 8 years ago and bought a property in Stanthorpe so the family would have work all year round. Stanthorpe grows strawberries in summer.
