  • Aussie Pepper with Donna and Plants

    Fresh, fragrant and full of flavour!

    Aussie Pepper is family owned and operated and proud to grow premium Australian pepper which is pesticide free and sustainably farmed at Silkwood, near Innisfail in Tropical North Queensland.

    Donna Campagnolo continues the family tradition of being committed to growing high quality pepper that will enhance the flavour of any food.

    In 1986, Louis and Levis Campagnolo - "L & L Pepper" - started planting piper nigrum plants and progressed to establish the first and only commercial pepper farm in Australia. Whilst most pepper is grown in Southern India, Indonesia and Malaysia, the latitude and climatic conditions in this pocket of Australia has allowed this crop to thrive with their experience and care.

  • Greg Nicholas standing in Daintree Tea Plantation

    The Daintree is a rainy place.

    The Nicholas family started the Daintree Tea Company in 1978 with the planting of the Cubbagudta (rainy place) tea plantation.

    Greg Nicholas continues to operate this Australian tea business today and employs locals in various roles to process and pack the tea on site in the middle of the Daintree rainforest.

    There are approximately 4km of hedge per hectare and the tea is mechanically harvested. Only the tender tips are taken and then processed and packaged on the farm. The moist warm climate of the Daintree Rainforest with nearly 4000mm of rainfall per year and an average temperature range of 25 to 35 degrees, make it ideal for growing the tea plant, Camellia sinensis.
