Case study

Dave Hunter | Cameron’s Pocket, near Calen

David Hunter owns and manages an organic banana farm at Cameron’s Pocket, near Calen, 55km north west of Mackay. The beautiful St Helens Creek and Eungella National Park border the 50 hectare property, which has 6 ha under banana production. When David moved to the property in 1989, banana crops were already established.
