South East Queesland Food Trails - Canungra Spuds

Canungra Spuds

Purchase beautiful spray-free spuds, pumpkins and honey from Canungra farmer Dale Mahony.

Dale Mahony just loves to grow potatoes on his family’s farm at Canungra. His grandfather and father purchased the farm, and then built the family home in the 1940s using timber from the property and from Tamborine Mountain. Back then, farmers in the area lived on twenty-acre dairy farms and made a living from the cream they produced. These days, Dale grows potatoes, pumpkins and honey. It’s not viable for Dale to sell his produce through the markets, so he sells directly to a couple of local retailers and from his roadside tin shed, outside his property on Coburg Road. The locals know Dale grows the best spray-free spuds in the area and always make a beeline for his produce.
