Welcome to Avocado Ridge and the Carney Family 
Who are we at carney.farm?

Jim and Lois Carney...  Started growing avocados in Western Australia in 1984.  We have six orchard farms in Queensland, growing primarily avocados. Our home farm is now Avocado Ridge established in 2004 in Childers.  We currently have 35,000 avocado trees and over the next eight months that will grow to 60,000 avocado trees and 10,000 macadamia trees.   Our nearby packing shed is SuperPak in Childers, is operated with son Eric and packs for 16 other fruit growers.   We also operate Prime Orchards agribusiness services providing long haul road transport, consultation, management, picking and other services.  Click here for Avocado Pickers Guide training video.
