Who We Are
Meet The Company
We are the Australian/ New Zealand Dealers for Monchiero C Snc, Italy. Monchiero Australia was created 10 yrs ago out of the need to improve our harvest rounds efficiency when we were leasing a Macadamia farm in Gympie Queensland. We were using the traditional finger wheel harvesters, but found it did not pick up the nuts in one single pass - increasing our labour costs, machinery costs and quality of nut.
Allen Morgan is a third generation Macadamia grower. His grandfather Jack Gowen owned Sahara Farms with his brother - so Allen has had many experiences with different types of harvesters, including the American style harvesters. After many searches on the internet we came across a 'Monchiero' harvester.
Massimo Monchiero came out to Australia in 2010 to check if their harvesters would be suitable for our Macadamia industry, as the harvesters worked in walnuts, chestnuts, and hazelnuts mainly overseas...and now the rest is history.
We have over 80 machines in Australia from Oakenden, Qld to Spalford, Tasmania, working in Macadamia, Pecan, Walnut, Chestnut & Hazelnut industry.
