Karl and Peter Stefanovic’s brother Tom opens up about his quiet life as an almond farmer

The secret life of the other Stefanovic: Karl and Peter’s brother Tom opens up about his career as an almond farmer after quitting his job as a cameraman

Peter and Karl Stefanovic are two of Australia’s most famous broadcast journalists.

But there’s also a third Stefanovic brother named Tom who prefers to lead a life outside of the spotlight.

The 36-year-old is married to former fashion publicist Jenna Dinicola and together the pair run the Mandolé Orchard almond farm in Griffith.

‘I used to be a cameraman and now I milk almond nipples for a living,’ Tom told The Daily Telegraph.

Since Tom doesn’t live in the same city as Karl and Peter, they don’t get to catch up all the time, but when they do it’s usually for a fun-filled family dinner.

‘We have two journalists in the family. Needless to say, there is more talking at one end of the table than the other,’ Tom said.

‘On these occasions my sister Elisa and I use the opportunity to pick out the best cuts of meat and the crispiest potatoes of which we then have to guard intensely for the remainder of the meal.’

Tom also said he’s been able to get big brother Karl to make the switch from dairy milk to almond milk.

In September, Tom and wife Jenna made a surprise appearance on Channel Seven’s The Morning Show to promote their almond farm.

‘When you look around, it isn’t hard to see why we moved back to the country,’ Jenna said.

‘But more importantly we’re really passionate about educating people about the health benefits of Australian almonds.’ 

Tom added: ‘They’re a super food, or a super nut if you’d like. They’re packed with all the essential minerals, vitamins and antioxidants… all the good things in it.’
