Who are we?
Hi! The Currant Family Sugar Cane Mulch business consists of Brian, Win, Andrew and Natasha Currant. Brian and Win began growing sugar cane back in the 1960′s when it was all cut by hand. Today they are still working on the farm every day despite being in their late 70′s and they have no intention of stopping any time soon.
As with all farming families, it has always been all hands on deck. Brian has experienced the hard labour of cutting cane by hand and undertaking manual loading onto trucks, right through to the earliest primitive cane harvesters and now the hydraulic cane harvesters used today.
Many people who visit us are amazed when they see Win still driving the tractor that haul the cane to the bins but she has been doing this for a long time now. She also did of this while raising three boys. If you stop in at the farm to pick up your bales of sugar cane mulch you’ll most likely see her carrying bales by hand or driving the forklift to restock the shed. Alternatively, you’ll chat to her on the phone if you order some bales to be delivered. Age and gender are no barrier on our farm.
Their youngest son Andrew has worked alongside them for nearly 30 years and is now playing a greater role in the family business while Brian and Win pretend to be retired. You will most likely meet Andrew when he delivers mulch to you.
I, Natasha, am the behind the scenes person. Aside from shifting the trees worth of business paperwork, I am busy raising the next generation of Currant boys to work with the family. .
So when you purchase your sugar cane mulch from us, you are receiving mulch that we have bailed ourselves from sugar cane that we have grown and harvested ourselves as well. Sugar cane mulch direct from the farmer to you.
Ian and Judy Wintle, winners of Gardening Australia’s 2009 ‘Golden Trowel” and regular participants in the Open Garden Scheme, have been purchasing mulch off of us for the last 10 years or so.
