CITRUS growers of the region are asking buyers to stay true to Bundaberg growers and trust that fruit will be stocked on supermarket without soaring prices.
Wallaville citrus grower Michael McMahon of Abbotsleigh Citrus said although the flood had taken out thousands of trees and caused substantial infrastructure damage, there was still fruit to be harvested.
"It cut me in half when I saw it initially, I've never felt like that before - you've just got to shake yourself and fix it up," Mr McMahon said.
Mr McMahon said it was important that rumours like 'citrus prices set to soar' or quantity to diminish were quashed.
"We need to get out that we're still going to be selling fruit."
Mr McMahon said the farm had to come back from the devastation.
"For the foreseeable future, we've got to build it up and make it work," he said.
The raging flood water took out around 5 000 to 10 000 trees of 62 000 in the orchard and inundated 80% of the orchard at Abbotsleigh.
"You see all the devastation - it's a god awful mess."
"But there's still a lot of crop on the tree's that's salvageable," Mr McMahon said.
The community had supported the farm, with Gin Gin State High School's, Alternate Program (GAP) students pitching in to speed up the recovery effort.
"They've been cleaning fences and pulling grass out of the trees," he said.
Mr McMahon said there were around one dozen volunteers from the community who had pitched in to help.
"One guy had a barber shop in Mildura - he shut his shop down for a week to come and help us, it's a really good effort," he said.
"It's been really good - we've had a lot of support."
The extra help was required as damage extended to Abbotsleighs blueberry crop, which saw the majority of blueberries lost along with infrastructure damage to shades and metal frames.
"We had about three hectares of blueberries and most of them were gone - they found about 10 000 of the 13 000 that we had," he said.
Mr McMahon said despite the setback, supermarket chains had remained loyal.
"Woolworths and Coles have been really great," he said.
Mr McMahon said a damage estimation was definitely in the millions and hoped it wouldn't exceed $2 million.
