The authorities have made it clear that people should only be travelling on essential family business which includes the purchase of food, as a result the markets have continued to evolve to ensure that local consumers can access the sites easily and move around to buy from local farmers and producers in surroundings as safe or safer than any supermarket.

Shambhala Farm – it’s about creating community through food

Craig Hubbard, the co-founder and owner of Shambhala Farm, is a first generation farmer with a passion for food resilience. Craig has been farming since 2007. Early in his career, with then co-founder Jemma Edwards, Craig lived in a rammed-earth, solar powered property on the banks of the Mary River, where he made a living by selling wholefoods and freshly milled flour at local markets as Maleny Wholefoods. Craig was later given the honour of earning an apprenticeship with Jim Hunt, a renowned local organic farmer of 40 years, who shared and instilled the principles and practice of organic, sustainable farming that further helped Shambhala Farm become what it is today.

Lenni Semmelink and Shaw Kamada-Laws share not only the business, but also a three year old son and an 18 month old daughter, so team work is essential every step of the way. In fact, everything sold at the Farmers Market Stalls is directly made by them.
