Mark and Amanda both spent their childhood growing up on Cane farms in the Wet Tropics around Innisfail. Having moved to Mareeba 13 years ago, they discovered what the locals already knew…….Mareeba is one of the best places in Queensland to grow Sugar. With 300 sunny days a year and ample irrigation available, growing crops of 130t/ha with a sugar content of 14-15% , is quite achievable.
