About Us

David and Sue MacRae planted their first macadamia trees over 35 years ago and, even before their original plantation produced its first crop, their nursery was producing seedlings for other growers.

Such was their passion for this unique Australian nut, the macadamia.


Their unwavering commitment to grow and produce a top quality product has expanded their business from modest beginnings to one of the largest privately owned macadamia plantations and processors in the world.

David & Sue’s original plantation at Brooklet is now their international head office. Situated on deep rich volcanic soil and nestled in the hinterland just minutes from the world renowned beaches of Byron Bay in Northern New South Wales, this beautiful area, known as the Northern Rivers Region, enjoys a subtropical climate and is picture perfect, with winding country roads and rolling hillsides landscaped with macadamia plantations.Pacific Farms Head Office Brooklet
