About Greenlee Farm:

In 1995, Robyn and Paul Lee moved to a property in Canungra on the foothills of the Darlington Range and established a small macadamia orchard.

They planted 500 trees, which took many months of hard labour as the land, previously used for grazing, was entirely bare.

It took five years for the trees to produce a few buckets of nuts, and another two until there was enough nuts to sell.

These days they sell their macadamia nuts through retail shops, wineries, markets and festivals across the Scenic Rim.

They also keep bees, as bees are essential to the pollination process of macadamia trees, and they sell jars of golden raw honey.

A hands-on family business, Greenlee Farm strives to be ‘clean and green’.
