Macadamia trees spring into next season

Walking through a macadamia orchard in Spring is a spectacular experience, with the heady scent of flowers and the buzz of bees filling the air. Spring is flowering time on a macadamia farm. From August to September, each macadamia tree can produce thousands of flower strands (called racemes).

Not everyone has the privilege of walking through a macadamia orchard at this special time, so let us take you there in our latest website story.
