Snake River Farms have been shut down this season for safety reasons, but they’ll remain open for farmers to pick fruit, produce and sell to customers.
The closure means the farms in the north-west have to close down for several weeks and will allow fruit and vegetable pickers to move to the new farm in north-eastern Queensland.
The first season of the Snake River Farm in the south-west, which opened in February, was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The new farm will open next month and will be open to fruit and vegetables, dairy and egg production.
It’s not yet known how many people will be affected by the closure.ABC/AAP
