About The Famers
The Siah family of six migrated to the Humpty Doo area from Malaysia in 1987. They brought with them generations of farming skills, their dreams of starting a produce business, and plants like durian, cempedak, pulasan, jackfruit, and mango varieties which had to survive quarantine before they could be planted in Australia.
Their son, Han Shiong Siah, a winner of the prestigious Nuffield Farming Scholarship is the manager, and public face of Tropical Primary Products.
