A Bundaberg lemon farm will be the first to supply supermarket chain, Coles, with Australian lemons all year round!
Stensgroup farmers, Stephen and Kathleen Stenhouse, have developed their own harvesting aid machinery, which will allow them to harvest in all weather conditions without damaging the lemons.
The family have been supplying Coles with quality citrus for the past four years and now, with Bundaberg providing warmer winters, conditions have changed. This gives the farmers an opportunity to harvest fruits when most Aussie growers aren't able to.
This means lemon imports will be replaced, making way to Coles' Australian-first sourcing policy and offering Aussie-grown lemons to customers all year round.
