Our family run business was launched by Daniel and Melanie Leesong. We opened the doors at Coal River Farm armed with a little bit of knowledge and a love of the finer things in life.
What started as a little knitting and growing a few vegetables (unsuccessfully due to very hungry kangaroos and substandard fencing) turned into something a little larger. Both originally came from executive or legal backgrounds and as the years went by were hit with the persistent urge to celebrate Tasmania's world class produce.
Between their five gorgeous kids who you will see wandering the farm like they own the place and their love of getting things done they are pretty passionate about the Coal River Valley. We're excited by the unqiueness of the region and love making fresh, unique products that put a smile on everyone’s face.
