Steve & Angela Pennell
Steve and Angela Pennel own and run Scenic Rim Organics. They have lived at their valley home for over twenty five years.
The Pennell name is a well known local name and it has been linked with the land for generations. Stephen and Angela’s focus is to grow quality organic vegetables for the burgeoning organic market in Brisbane and supply local markets when required.Angela and Steve’s farm is situated at Kalbar in the Fassifern Valley, where they grow brilliant jap/kent pumpkins, kale, silverbeet and other goodies to supply to Food Connect since 2006.
Here are a few words from the Pennels:
"...home is here in the heart of The Scenic Rim. Lake Moogerah is just a few minutes’ drive from our farm. We live in a very picturesque part of South East Queensland. Our farm is close to mountain walks and has a variety of water activities at its doorstep.
Much of our farmland is certified organic and we are working towards the whole farm under certification in the coming years. We grow, pick and pack our organic vegies with the mountains providing a spectacular backdrop to every day. Welcome to our office!
Steve has been farming all of his working life and Ange has also had connections to the land all her life. They have lived at the Moogerah home for all of their married life and particularly enjoy growing a great crop and presenting it for sale at markets in Brisbane and locally.
It is always a thrill to serve visitors a plate of home grown organic vegies, homemade bread and home cooked jams and chutneys.
