Dragan Farms

Peregian Beach, Queensland, Australia

Mark Dragan, Alexi Cox, her sisters and mum Pam, are passionate organic farmers operating Dragan Farms, their family-owned farm on 99 acres on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. Mark uses his 20-year background in horticulture and landscape gardening to grow a variety of healthy fruit trees in their food forest and seasonal leafy green vegetables, herbs and subtropical crops.

Their happy free-range chickens provide pasture-raised eggs with their flock rotating through pastures after the pet cows have mown the grass. Beehives provide pollination for their produce and enable them to sell honey as well as fresh farm eggs, leafy greens, a variety of vegetables, herbs, turmeric and galangal during the year at their farmgate shop. A favourite with locals, you too can experience Dragan Farms farmgate shop on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays with seasonal fruit like local organic strawberries and their own dragon fruit, bananas and watermelons.

They also sell locally sourced meat, dairy and fish. An innovative new addition to the farm is a temperature-controlled vending machine so you can self-serve honey and eggs at any time.
