Finger Limes For the World

2020 has arrived along with an early start to our finger lime season.

It’s been a difficult start to the year for many people across Australia experiencing extreme drought and devastating fires across rural and regional areas along the east coast of our country.

We have also been experiencing drought but nothing to the level that has been seen in other areas. For the first time in over 30 years, we have seen our area of Bellthorpe become brown and dry and bush fires and smoke a regular feature of what is normally extremely lush vegetation. We are glad we had the capacity to build large dams on our property many years ago which has allowed us to maintain our watering regime on the finger limes and other crops over the years.

That said, pumping out over 1 million litres of water ever week is a big deal and certainly making a difference to the water levels in our main irrigation dam. Finger limes are thirsty and some of our trees are 20ft high which means they need plenty of water! Rain is also much needed here but we’ll wait our turn behind our fellow farmers down south and out west.

Grateful are we for the particularly big crop we have on and are excited to see just how much we yield during the 2020 fresh finger lime season. We began picking just before Christmas and our first major export shipment is due to leave very soon.

It’s always great to be back in touch with our long standing clients and we look forward to sending our premium finger limes all over the world and across the country for everyone to enjoy.
