Rain & Coconuts in Port Douglas February 11 2019
Recent rain & monsoon conditions in Far North Queensland are wreaking havoc on local small businesses, including ours.
Coconut Harvesting - Jesse, who hand harvests all the coconuts from Port Douglas beaches, had many delays due to rain and winds. He eventually ventured out, harvested in heavy rains, and came home with 1000+ coconuts.
But - there were many coconuts to pick up on Port Douglas' 9 Mile Beach - see photo. If only we had access to these isolated, hard-to-reach spots on the beach...
Markets - Our Port Douglas & Cairns markets have been extremely quiet. As a result, our sales are down and our staff hours are reduced. We are working on ideas to reward our customers with special February sales. Stay tuned!
Gold Coast - On a positive note, we are thrilled to have Amber & Kyle selling Beach Harvest Coconut Chips at Gold Coast! They are at the Bundall Evandale Markets. You can contact them directly on 0433 272 003.
