Macadamias are native to the east coast of Australia. Over the years, many varieties have been developed to enhance their quality and to suit different growing conditions.
We are lucky. The Bundaberg region produces premium macadamias that are just at home in an orchard as they are in their native rainforests.
As we approach the end of Summer, the nuts are fully developed and begin falling from the trees, ready to be harvested periodically for peak quality.
Before we can package the delicious Happy Nut products you know and love, the macadamias are de-husked and go through stringent sorting and quality assurance processes to deliver our quality product that you have come to expect.
Meet Our Farmers
Growing macadamias isn’t just a job. It involves working with Mother Nature and consistently discovering better ways to farm. With sustainability as the cornerstone, our network of farmers grow the quality macadamias that become our universally adored Happy Nut products.
Like us, many of our growers work alongside their families each day and use nature-based solutions to tackle modern problems. These growers form the Freedom Fresh Australia ecosystem, offering full product traceability and first-grade macadamia nuts to create the quality Happy Nut products that you can trust.
We’d love you to meet some of them:
We work with a passionate network of Aussie macadamia growers that value the same sustainability principles that our family has lived and worked by for over 60 years.
With a sense of environmental responsibility, our family of growers are brought together to share in our vision of producing a quality product that we can all be proud of for generations to come.
We encourage our growers to be Freshcare accredited, Hort360 Reefcare accredited, HACCP accredited and ensure our growers adhere to the Australian Macadamia Society’s Code of Sound Orchard Practices.
