Sonia said that thanks to word of mouth, the Crooked Carrot has become a popular tourist destination – especially since the construction of a nature playground a few months ago.
“It’s popular for birthday parties, and with parents who can just relax while the kids go play,” she said.

What are your highlights of the past 12 months?
The Crooked Carrot has had some big moments in the past year.
“I really value having a great team that works with me and helps recognise our vision,” Sonia said. “The business is thriving.”
The Crooked Carrot was nominated anonymously for an accessibility and inclusion small business award. “It was a massive surprise, and nice to be recognised in our second year of business," Sonia said.
The business also did a fundraiser for drought-stricken farmers which raised $50,000 in a month.
“We were thrilled at the amazing generosity of our customers,” Sonia said. “One young girl donated all of her pocket money – she was on the radio, and received a phone call from then Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. We love that we can inspire that kind of generosity. Our main business is to support farmers, so that was incredible.”
