These are managed by our expert staff and operated with modern machinery.

All the husking is done at Elgin Park, Cooran.

Insecticide free trials

We are trialling two blocks on a zero insecticide management plan. Basically, we time the release of beneficial insects to counter destructive insect pests. We are in the second year of a four-year trial process. It's too early to say if this will work, but the early results look promising. We are working closely with our suppliers at BioResources: www.bioresources.com.au

Carbon Footprint

We have recently installed two 30kW systems at our Elgin Farm in Traveston, and our site at Johnson Court, Cooroy. We also installed a 'power correction factor' unit at Cooroy in order to improve business energy productivity.

Estimated lifetime CO2 reduction: 900 tonnes.

Estimated annual energy production: 42,740 kWh.
