Sunset Ridge Farming is an Australian owned and operated family business with a passion for sustainable farming.
Having worked for 18 years on an isolated mining site we decided to move south in 1996 to our property, located close to the beautiful volcanic Lake Barrine far in North Queensland.
Having no idea of how to earn a living on the land we quite by accident decided to grow native rainforest fruit, which quickly became an obsession with our very unique rainforest fruits.
We now farm three main fruits, Davidson Plum, Lemon Aspen and Finger Limes, from which we produce jams, fruit pastes and confectionery.
The Davidson Plum, with its explosion of colour and intense clean tangy flavour and packed with anti-oxidants, has many uses including sauces deserts, yoghurt, jam, ice tea, wine and can also be used in shampoos and soaps.
Lemon aspen has a wonderfully tart lemon cirtus tase with a hint of grapefruit. It can be used in salad dressings, beverages, soft deserts, marmalade, marinades and confectionary.
Finger Limes (bush caviar) is an exquisite rainforest fruit which when eaten is like having a party in your mouth with little explosions of citrus. It goes well with just about anything and you are only limited by your own imagination.
