Raised in Victoria, macadamia farmer Andrew Wallis formerly grew wheat, cattle and sheep in Bendigo. Now Andrew and wife Jo are proud macadamia farmers in Bundaberg, Queensland, the largest macadamia producing region in Australia. Wallis’s macadamia trees were planted in 2007 as part of Andrew and Jo’s retirement, “We had decided that because we’ve had a pretty hectic business life, that we’d retire at 50 and we’d like to retire on an orchard. So, 7 days a week, 14 hours a day, this is retirement,” laughs Andrew
