Profile: Roly & Jemma Mackinnon, Mountford Berries, Tasmania

This is an article profiling Roly & Jemma Mackinnon from Mountford Berries in Tasmania. Roly and his family run a mixed farming enterprise at Longford in the states’ north. Roly started his working life on the farm alongside his brother and father Hugh. During that early stage the farm produced livestock and cropping. It was 10 years later, after a chance meeting with Simon Dornauf from Hillwood Berries who was growing berries for Driscoll’s, that Roly decided to also consider growing berries. It was good timing as the Mountford farming business was looking to diversify and berries looked like a good fit.
