Sacked at 70 years of age for being “too old”, Henri threw caution to the wind and started a new business as a macadamia farmer – with no prior experience. More than 20 years and 35,000 trees later he’s showing no signs of stopping.
At the age of 70, Henri Bader was sacked from his job as a sales manager. But, “I was young. I was only 70. I didn’t feel like I’d come to the end of my working life.” So Henri began his farming career, enrolling in TAFE to learn the art of cultivating macadamia trees – of which he now has 35,000.
