2014 was the first ever Willunga Farmers Market Young Farmers Scholarship.
From 1 scholarship 2 businesses were born, with the initial Garden Farmers expanding and separating into Cleanslate Produce.
Now, after 2 years trading at Willunga Farmers Market, 2014’s scholarship recipients have gone from strength to strength. Both Alex Steimanis and Jay Kimber have created separate businesses growing a wide range of vegetables using organic and permaculture practices.
Jay has established a larger plot of land on the top of Willunga Hill where the Garden Farmers green juice greens are grown. She has also started trading at other markets throughout Adelaide.
In addition to the original farm site, Alex has established a second plot at Aldinga where he continues to grow the heirloom veg that Cleanslate Produce has become renowned for.
We are so proud of everything these guys have achieved in such a short space of time. Congratulations guys, you are an inspiration!
