Farm Description

My father purchased property in 1967 from a family which had previously owned the property for around 100 years. My father was raised in the city always wanting to be a farmer. After a number of years jackerooing in the Reids Flat District he had the opportunity to buy the property. The property was pretty run down with no improvements being done previously. Continued to add land early eighties up until present. After alot of hard work and trial and error all places are now fully operational only having about 20% native pasture with the rest being all pasture improved. The places are run by myself and my father with contractors part time.[ mainly fencing].
