Help Samantha Tocknell With Her Recovery

Samantha Tocknell from NT Farmers is lucky to be alive after an accident just before Christmas. As a result of this accident, she now has to foot a medical bill of $10,000!

Sam has worked with AMIA, assisting us with the pre-season grower meeting and supporting the quality project in the Northern Territory – some of you may have seen her with Jess, earlier this year.

If you would like to support Sam please click here. Sam’s story appeared in the NT News last week.
We wish her all the best with her recovery.




Last week saw Australia Day festivities generate more Aussie-themed recipes in print and online media, with Australian Healthy Food Guide printing a recipe for mango, lime and coconut pops, SBS publishing an article about pavlovas and Australia Day, Good Food posting a recipe for palm-sugar meringue and grilled pineapple with mango passionfruit granita, The Urban List sharing a guide for food to eat on Australia Day, and Sporteluxe posting a recipe for no-bake gluten-free cheesecake. 

Mangoes are also continually being included in food-trend recipes and health food how-to guides! The Huffington Post published a how-to guide for on-trend 'buddha bowls' with mango, Coles magazine shared a recipe for chia, almond and mango 'breakfast bowls'. Women's Fitness also published a feature on mangoes, whilst That's Life! shared recipes for mango and peach frozen swirl, and mango and lime grilled chicken. 
Meanwhile, Nagi Maehashi of Recipe Tin Eats is still sharing experiences from her recent visit to Groves Grown Tropical Fruit farm, with an insightful article about her trip appearing in The Whitsunday Times, The Morning Bulletin, The Central Telegraph, The Central Queensland News, and The Rural Weekly. 


In social media, another of Australia's top YouTube foodies, Thriving on Plants, posted a video to her channel with 94,000 subscribers. The video included three scrumptious mango recipes; mango chia pudding, mango cheesecake tarts, and mango sorbet!! 
Moreover, 10 more of Australia's favourite Instagram health foodies received rustic, 'Australiana-themed' packages containing everything they need to make delicious mango dishes on Australia Day and throughout the rest of summer! Thus far, there have been 10 Instagram posts and one blog article generated as a result of this activity, reaching 217,500 people, and receiving 2,770 likes and 101 comments!
