As third generation local farmers, Peter & Alison Salleras' passion for the natural environment is evident as they share their knowledge of fruit farming, rainforest and heritage. Fruit Forest Farm is an award winning "Wet Tropics World Heritage Neighbour."
Fruit Forest Farm trialled and introduced a unique and innovative style of growing exotic fruit trees in the tropics after two damaging cyclones affected the area. The ‘Tatura’ trellising method has since been adopted by other farmers in cyclone affected areas.
Peter, Alison and their team are continually fine tuning innovative, productive and sustainable practices.
