Desley Jackwitz

Desley Jackwitz runs Wilamay Farms and Imperial Produce out of Gatton in the Lockyer Valley in south-east Queensland.

A family-run operation, the farm originally grew traditional vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli. It has now been supplying to OneHarvest for seven years - all of the baby leaf lines as well as chard, tatsoi and pak choy.

Passionate about expanding her knowledge of farming and improving her professional qualifications, Desley recently completed Diplomas in both Agriculture and Rural Business Management and actively encourages her staff to also pursue formal qualifications. She also takes advantage of overseas study tours whenever she can to make new connections and be exposed to best practice.

Desley loves her job and the industry.  “I really enjoy the challenges,” she says.  “You never stop thinking, you’re always learning, you’re always trying to find the next thing to improve your business.  And there are a lot of really great people in this industry!”
