The hair cut on a banana is usually done with a razor blade and a pair of scissors.
But when a banana comes to the fruit farm in southern Queensland, a pair can cut their own hair with a pair, using a simple comb.
“It’s very simple to do,” the manager of the patterson farm, Michael Patterson, said.

It’s a pretty neat process.”
The patterson family cut their very own hair in a banana peel at the Patterson Farm.
But this time around, Mr Patterson is hoping for more.
“We’re hoping to have a few other fruit grown up on this farm and I’m hoping that one day they’ll start growing their own fruit,” he said.
“They’re really interested in growing their fruit.
They’re very interested in this, and it’s very important to them.”‘
We can get all sorts of fruit’The pattersons’ banana farm in Bunbury.

The Pattersons and their two sons were first introduced to the farming operation by a local farmer who asked them to cut a pair.
Mr Patterson said they’ve always had a passion for bananas and grew up with an interest in fruit.
“When I was growing up, it was my favourite thing to grow.”
It was really fun to grow bananas, I was always playing with them,” he explained.”
You know, just watching the fruit grow, and we’d watch and I’d ask, ‘Is that the fruit that you want?’
“Mr Patterson is hopeful his banana farm can help to feed the local community.”
I don’t know if it’s because we’re a small family, or we’re in a small community, but we’re doing this to feed a community,” he laughed.
He said the banana farm is the perfect place to grow his own produce, which has already helped feed a few local farmers.
