Liz Childs | Farm Manager - Abbotsleigh Citrus Farm

Liz started from humble beginnings at Abbotsleigh Citrus farm as a general farm hand in 2007. Her desire to work with people and determination to learn different areas of farm operations including Irrigation and Picking, led to her various promotions and career progression. She knows the farm intimately having walked and travelled every row and block.

Last year, Liz completed an Accelerated Leadership Performance Program run by Women & Leadership Australia, a national initiative supporting women in business and community leadership roles.

Liz grew up in Brisbane, then moved to Western Australia for 10 years before returning home and finding her dream home in a town called Gin Gin. “I love the fast paced, challenging and fun atmosphere at Abbotsleigh Citrus Farm as well as working with a great team of people, and it never gets boring as every day is different.”

Tommy Braybrook | Farm Manager - Sunwest Farm

Tommy’s journey started back in 2006 - when he decided he wasn’t too keen on moving to the big city for a uni degree. His love for the outdoors and horticulture led to his first “real” job in the vineyards with Sevenfields Management maintaining irrigation drippers. Tommy gained valuable hands on experience in various farm roles including hand pruning, pulling weeds, wire removal and tractor duties which led him progressing from Farm Hand to Operations Supervisor.

Tommy now manages our Sunwest Farm in Sunraysia which is home to one of Australia's largest Afourer mandarin and Australian-grown Delite mandarin crop. “It’s been exciting and challenging times working at Sunwest Farm the last 7 years and I get a great sense of pride when I see how much our customers all around the world love our Sunwest Citrus and Delite mandarins.”

Andy Hancock is responsible for two of our farms in the Nangiloc area of Sunraysia - Hattah and Tarcoola where we grow oranges, mandarins, lemons and grapefruit. Originally from South Australia where he spent most of his working life in the wine and viticulture industry.

“It has been an amazing journey so far, with the opportunities to work in different areas around the country, all with new experiences with different crops and in varying climates and most importantly working with some amazing people as well”
