Kalfresh and the Jurgens family in Bowen have been in a joint venture for seven years.
The partnership enables us to provide reliable, consistent supply of organic and conventional vegetables from May to November, taking advantage of the mild North Queensland winter.
Jamie and Melita Jurgens, together with daughter Jess, have been at the forefront of our push into Certified Organic farming and have adopted major innovations on farm, both in their conventional and organic farming systems.
They farm about 2500 acres in Bowen and the Burdekin and have become specialists in sweet corn, green beans, baby capsicums, snacking tomatoes, pumpkin and mini melons.
This video tells a little more of the Jurgens’ farming story.
