Humble beginnings: a passion for farming
Our Founder Olympia was always determined to farm. It’s been a lifelong dream since her days at school and as a young teenage mum. When her son died young, she left Canberra to live in Darwin. She had no family support and it seemed like the dream was lost. A one-way ticket to the USA and a job training horses brought her one step closer to the dream. But it was a long 14 year wait before she got the chance. She came back to Australia with the dream to farm on the the land. Farms are expensive to buy and she faced more blockers. Tired of waiting, she started exploring farming insects; looking for the most creative way to create protein and make her farm financially sustainable.
