From: Zamira Tyson we will be opening the Arts and Cultural Centre late next month and are attempting to provide samples of local produce. Currently I am trying to locate a bush food supplier in our Shire. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated to find the following products, Kangaroo, Emu, Fruits, vegetables or shoots. Thank you, Zamira Tyson Temp Administration Officer, Economic & Community Development Beaudesert Shire Council www.bsc.qld.gov.au T (07) 5540 5292 F (07) 5540 5344 E firstname.lastname@example.org
Could you please put us in contact with someone that can supply us with a commercial quantity of finger Lime Trees. Many Thanks Chris MJ_CH@westnet.com.au
Bunyas - I am situated in the Byron / Lismore shire. Depending upon order size I can deliver in the Brisbane metropolitan area, alternatively I find Australia Post to be the most efficient forwarder . The produce is fresh , this is an important note , and is in the nut form as opposed to the whole cone or individual .
