Just a few miles north of Gympie lies a chemical free farm in the small town of Theebine. The passion behind this farm is one that came after an eye opening experience of a farmer working at a tomato farm. This experience with chemical farming quickly shined a light on what he felt led to do.
About the tomato farm that was so life changing for Adam, he stated, “I noticed empty drums lying around with skull and cross bones on them.” On a hot day, he made the mistake of rolling up his sleeves before picking tomatoes. He not only developed a rash from the chemicals, but some days he felt bad enough to stay in bed. “One girl went into anaphylactic shock in reaction to the sprays on the plants and had to be carted off in an ambulance with a tube down her throat.”
