Being 4th generation Bellingen born from an established farming family, Paul Foster has grown up with a love of the land and received a hands-on education in farming and agriculture. Paul’s natural entrepreneurial tendencies first made themselves known at the age of 13 when he began collecting and selling horse manure for the local growers and gardeners, all boxed up and delivered with his Billy cart. In the early 90’s Paul could see the emergence of organic farming and produce. It made perfect sense to him and he wanted to be part of it.
Initially Paul grew and sold his own produce, but soon realized that many farmers struggled with the transport and marketing of their goods. Being a natural organizer and communicator, Paul grew up helping in his father’s transport business and this, along with his understanding of farming and produce gives Paul Foster the perfect skills set to support growers in getting their produce to market. With over 27 years’ experience in organic produce, Paul is well connected and well informed and only too happy to share his knowledge and expertise to help farmers do what they do best - grow food!
