Global Leaders in Ethical Dairy
Bannister Downs Dairy Farm was Founded in 1924 in Northcliffe by pioneers, Edith and James Daubney. Nearly a century later, the farm is still family owned and now managed by their grandson, Mat and his wife, Sue.
Bannister Downs Farm is home to more than 2,200 Holstein Fresian cows, specifically chosen to create premium quality milk.
“We know every cow, their heritage and family history. We know their personality, habits, likes and dislikes. It’s a big responsibility to manage the individual needs of our girls, but we believe that is what makes our Farm special”.
– Sue and Mat Daubney
In 2010, Mark and Cate Weston established Bookara Goat Dairy, situated 40 kilometres south of Geraldton.
They milk about 150 to 200 head of Alpine breed goats and produce yoghurt, cheese and milk.

Central Stockcare was initially established in 2002 by current Director Katie Ryan.
An opportunity existed for a dedicated livestock handling and husbandry business to service the live export business her now husband Dean Ryan was managing at the time.
From humble beginnings with a second-hand ute, quad bike, four dogs and three horses, the business progressed from many long days and short nights. Today, Central Stockcare has developed into a multidimensional agribusiness.
Get down to Farm2Fork to taste their delicious beef and have a chat to producers, Katie and Ryan.
Correia Fishing Co was founded by brothers Frank, David, Tony, Joe and Mario, originally from Madeira Island, Portugal. They began arriving in Fremantle in June 1952.
Originally focusing on fishing for Western Rock Lobster, the brothers also began farming in Carnarvon and in 1963 formally established Correia Fishing Co to begin fishing in the then newly created, Shark Bay Prawn Fishery.
Correia Fishing Co has been supplying its products to national and international markets since its beginnings and in recent years, direct to the public from our seafood outlet in Fremantle, providing the unique opportunity for West Australians to purchase Shark Bay seafood from Shark Bay’s original fishing company, Correia Fishing Co.
Correia Fishing Co Prawns will be on offer at Farm2Fork!
Farmhand Foods is passionate about creating great food from ethical, natural and great tasting ingredients.
Farmhand Foods was born from a passionate bunch of WA foodies who believed there was a way to create delectable treats without the use of highly processed ingredients, preservatives or other additives.
All product recipes were developed by renowned cook and food writer Kirsty Carre, ensuring the treats are nutritious, nourishing and, above all, make the taste buds sing!
At Farm2Fork, you can taste Farmhand Foods’ high quality oats, which have been grown in the Great Southern region of West Australia – an area renowned for producing the highest quality premium oats.
Considered to be the best octopus in the world, Fremantle Octopus was founded in 2000.
The company has not only created a sustainable octopus fishing industry in Western Australia, where none previously existed, but have also built a thriving manufacturing operation that has a world reputation for high quality seafood products. All this whilst maintaining a sustainable fishery policy.
Founded by former crayfishermen, Ross and Craig Cammilleri, Fremantle Octopus Group is credited with revolutionising and commercialising WA’s octopus fishery, after developing technology (called trigger traps) that increased catch rates five times over traditional methods.

The Sicilian family who introduced sardines to the Australian table.
Jim Mendolia’s family migrated from Sicily in the 1950s to capitalise on the booming Fremantle lobster trade. Little did they know that they’d be laying the foundations for driving the rise of a far more underrated seafood: sardines.
“Sardines were a lot of our diet growing up, because they were so cheap and plentiful. Dad brought over his nets from Siciliy and we started fishing for them ourselves”.
The family successfully brought these delicious fish to Australia’s attention and Mendolia heads up a newly expanded seafood company, Fremantle Sardines, now in its 32nd year of business. The company aims to showcase the virtues of other underrated and highly sustainable fish, including Australian salmon and long tail tuna.
Mendolia Seafoods was recently awarded the ‘National Environment Award’ for their innovative development of a plastic free, biodegradable Burley Brick, turning Western Australia into a leader in the fight on plastic free pollution.
