At 26 years of age, Kurt Henke from Bundaberg in Queensland is one of Australia’s youngest macadamia growers. Now in charge of his grandad’s 24-hectare macadamia orchard, Kurt is about to complete his third macadamia harvest season – and he has his hands full. “Last year we planted 5,000 macadamia trees and we’ve got another 5,000 ordered for this year to go in,” he explains. Des and his wife still live on the farm and love to lend a hand. “I couldn’t have asked for a better start in farming,” says Kurt.
