After growing up in metropolitan Melbourne, Georgia Beattie embarked on a career in technology. Working in rural industries had not entered her mind until she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, which led her to research different foods and how they were produced.

A steep learning curve and a greater understanding and appreciation of where our food comes from became a passion for Georgia.

Having studied entrepreneurship, she applied her knowledge, organisational experience and technological skills to lead Australia’s largest organic mushroom farm, Bulla Park, at Diggers Rest on the north-west outskirts of Melbourne.
