Steve Bartolo - Kandanga, Qld.
Casa de Maylen Organic Farm has a 1000 tree Avocado orchard including Shepard, Hass, Fuerte, Sharwill and Wurtz.
We purchased the farm in 2013 and started from the first day to take care it according the Organic Principles and National Standard for Organic Product, in consequence of that, we began to be certified. Now we are 100% Organic.
Steve comes from 25 years of working the Sugar Cane fields and has pioneered Organic Sugar production in Queensland. Organic farming is part of his roots and passion. He started with this 68 Acre, run down Avocado orchard at Kandanga in the Mary Valley and put his experience into building the soil to recuperate the old trees and conserve the biodiversity and nature. We hope to show a future model of life resilient, simple and local.
We produce and pack our fruits and sell the most in local markets and specific retailer and wholesaler of organic produce. We are every Sunday at Northey Street City Farm (NSCF) Brisbane, exclusive market for certified organic products.
