Our People & Community

Yumbah people are coastal, bound together by a shared passion and love for the ocean and the beautiful abalone we sustainably farm. We are a family of committed and caring aquaculture workers who are a part of the Yumbah team because we love what we do.

Yumbah couldn’t produce the world’s best abalone without love, passion and respect. Every one of our farm managers is committed to ensuring our shellfish will be around for people to enjoy for centuries to come.

So let’s meet some of the special people who make Yumbah tick.

Yumbah Community

Yumbah families live and work in the communities where they farm, their children go to local schools and play sport for local teams. Having an ongoing contribution to the communities is very important to Yumbah. Surf Life Saving clubs, fundraising food events and local football, cricket and RSL clubs are all important to the local communities where Yumbah people live and work. Yumbah understands the importance of local education and contributes not just financially, but through work experience opportunities and regular school group tours through its farms. Most importantly, Yumbah also relies on a healthy sustainable environment. To help ensure its preservation, Yumbah sponsors the Blue Whale Study and its connection to the Bonney Upwelling and Yaygirr Language Centre from where Yumbah derives its name.
