Fred Fountain, a former antique dealer from Coventry, England, is a successful banana grower in the NSW coastal town of Woolgoolga. Every week, he and his wife, Marjorie, drive 150 miles to the university city of Armidale, to sell bananas direct to the public. Fred migrated in 1957, and started in business in a petrol station, He lost his own money when the main road past the petrol station was diverted. How ever, he bought a run down banana plantation, and he and his wife have now built it into a thriving business producing top quality fruit. Fred and Marjorie Fountain pack bananas.
