Welcome to Far North Plantations
Far North Plantations is the Cairns based distribution agent for Aussie Pepper and Daintree Tea. 100% Australian grown and processed up here in Tropical Far North Queensland.
A few extra personal favourites from our Far North Queensland friends and neighbours are also available in the pantry below.
Fresh, fragrant and full of flavour!Aussie Pepper
Aussie Pepper is family owned and operated and proud to grow premium 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.
The Daintree is a rainy place.Daintree Tea
The Nicholas family started the Daintree Tea Company in 1978 with the planting of the Cubbagudta (rainy place) plantation.
Greg Nicholas continues to operate the 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, camelia sinensis.
Best pepper I’ve ever tasted 😊😊!!!
We have been using Pepper from Far North Plantations for a couple of years now. We usually purchase the kibble & whole peppercorns and thought we would add the ground pepper our collection this time. This pepper is of excellent quality, love it, wouldn't use any other pepper <3. Ordering is a breeze and customer Service is 10/10 <3
I brought my first box when I visited the Daintree. Was so impressed I now sell it in my food van. I pride my self in quality produce and this is definitely one
I brought 2 pkts from my recent trip to the Daintree. Love my tea it makes a wonderful cuppa! Thanks
I love this pepper!
Will be buying the peppercorns all the time great flavour
Best tea I've had.
Taste is so unique, can't describe specifically, other than yum!
Seller was very efficient, will buy again
I was given a jar of Kibble at
Xmas and loved the
Product so I ordered 3 jars on line for myself and two friends
It is amazing pepper. Full of flavour and the aroma, my gosh it’s just amazing. You’ll never buy any other pepper after trying this.
We have been drinking Daintree loose leaf tea for approximately 20 years. 14 years ago we stayed at a B & B in Tenterfield NSW. Our host told us that she bought it online. We have been doing so since. Real tea, in real China tea cups in a china teapot. Only way to start our day! One of life's pleasures
First time buying. Very happy with delivery and ordering was easy. The fruit is full of flavour. Will be ordering more. Order some you won't be disappointed.
It’s the only pepper we use- simply the best!
Kibble is our preference. First purchased when on holiday in Queensland and now by mail order.
The only tea I will drink 👍😊
