The Greatest Show On Earth

Get ready to wave goodbye to our dragon fruit season in the next couple of months! The cooler weather is putting a chill on our buds, flowers, and fruit production. The plants themselves? Well, they're not going to win any beauty contests. These cacti are prickly personalities, with enough spikes to ward off an echidna. Even though I suit up in long sleeves and gloves, I can't escape a few prickles and scratches on my arms when picking the fruit.

There's Some Holes In My Story

There's Some Holes In My Story

Do you know much about holes, especially those that show up on a farm? On our farm, they seem to appear overnight. They could be from our clever farm dog, Vader, digging up a bone he buried earlier or maybe from bandicoots burrowing around, as we have plenty on the farm. Or perhaps the holes are created by pesky hares that, after gnawing on our irrigation lines, decide to dig around in the dirt instead.

Celebrating World Bee Day

Did you know World Bee Day buzzes around on May 20th? It's like a sweet celebration of the little winged wonders that keep us and the planet in tip-top shape! Our farm couldn't do without them - they’re like tiny flying matchmakers for our lychee and dragon fruit orchards. Without them, our fruit production would go downhill fast.

Meet Some of The Faces @ Yanalla Farms

Hey there. Rob and Karen Martin checking in. Delighted to virtually meet you. As proud owners of Yanalla Farms we're not afraid to roll up our sleeves and dive right into the dirt... literally!  Whether that be propagating, planting, picking, packing, pruning or pest control.  But let's be real, the greatest challenge nowadays is not getting our hands dirty - it's trying to gracefully stand back up afterward!

Hail the Sculptures

It was 40 years in the making, but on the 10th October 2018, the ferocious hail storm only lasted 10 minutes, ripping through the property with such intensity to uproot trees.  Even the fruit and branches bore the brunt of the force.
