Banana farming has been a long standing tradition in the Moorhead family. 

In 1925 the family’s first banana farm was established by Charlie Moorhead at Mt Mee, Queensland.

The farm is now proudly owned by Charlie’s Son Merv and his wife Naomi. Learning from his father, Merv has taken banana farming back to its origins, growing bananas without the use of chemicals and fertilizers through biodynamic farming principles.

The Moorhead & Rutter farm is now located in the beautiful and banana friendly environment of Wamuran, Queensland – just west of Caboolture.

Today, more than 90 years since inception, Moorhead & Rutter are one of the country’s leaders in banana farming. Distributing their produce through organic ‘Farmers’ Markets, direct to consumers and through normal wholesale channels to retailers of organically produced fruit & veg.

I normally don’t eat bananas but I enjoy eating yours

The only problem I have is that the children eat them all the next day and there aren’t any for the rest of the week

My children won’t eat other bananas since they have eaten yours

Did you know Bananas are actually an Herb? 

Sometimes mistaken as a tree because of its size and appearance, the banana plant is actually an herb (Genus Musa) which is cultivated for its fruit.

The banana is one of the most widely cultivated fruit crops in the world -grown in more than 130 countries – and of course, it is also one of the most popular. 

Bananas and your Nutrition and Health

Bananas rank among the healthiest fruits. A single serving of a medium banana weighs in at approximately 100 calories and includes 2.8 grams of dietary fibre and 1 gram of protein.

Bananas are also rich in A and B vitamins, with more B6 than any other fruit. Plus Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin and Folic Acid. They also contain small amounts of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and traces of iron and zinc.

Bananas are also an especially rich source of the mineral potassium, which fuels the muscles and aids in contraction, making them an ideal snack just prior to any kind of physical activity.
