What do you make/grow? Apples & pears and make jams & chutneys

Where are you based? Harcourt, Central Vic

How long have you been selling at farmers’ markets? Markets for 20 years and farmers markets for the past 13 years.

Why is it important to support Victorian producers? To keep industry in Victoria, less travel. Increase local jobs, if you don’t support Australian growers, there won’t be any Australian producers.

Do you think there is a shift/movement in local food systems? Slowly, supermarkets still dominate and will continue to as they own rights to particular varieties of apples.
