Pim Mens has been supplying Food Connect with her scrumptious strawberries and salad mix since 2011 from her picturesque 11 acre property at the Glasshouse Mountains in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
Arriving in Australia from Thailand as a teenager, Pim could not have known that she would meet the man of her dreams on a strawberry farm in QLD and would eventually marry into Australian strawberry royalty...and we are so glad the stars aligned!
When Pim started out in 2002, the organic market was relatively small and so Pim sold her Strawberries on the conventional market, even though they were grown organically.Pim now farms just under 5 acres of strawberries and approx 2 acres of vegetables on the property. Not only is Pim a brilliant farmer she is also a superwoman, raising 4 children along the way. During the peak of the strawberry season Pim's kids lend a hand and there can also be up to 4 WWOOFers on the farm.
Pim opens her Farm for School Tours and loves educating kids on where real food comes from and the processes involved. We feel so lucky to have Pim and Edwin supplying Food Connect's customers beautiful local, ecological and nutritious produce.
