Eddie Achtenberg, 37, and his brother, Johan, 35, formerly of Twaalfmorgen 40, Reewyk, (ZH), are probably the largest strawberry growers in Australia. Their farm, in the Redlands district of Queensland, 20 miles from the capital of Brisbane, has 800 000 strawberry plants on 25 acres and produces up to five tons of strawberries a day at the peak of the season. Mr Achterberg checks the quality of the strawberries picked by a young picker. In the background is the typical virgin bushland which covered their farm only a few years ago
