December 2019

We finished the last of the harvesting two weeks ago. This is certainly the earliest we’ve finished harvest in recent times. 2019 has been the lowest rainfall season on record in most areas on the Yorke Peninsula.

November 2019

Our harvest operations kicked off with windrowing some barley in early October. Our annual rainfall has been the lowest on record at most of the properties we farm.

October 2019

2019 has broken all of the local rainfall records, being the driest season ever since readings were first kept in 1875. Locally our annual rainfall is down about 50% from the long term average.

August 2019

2019 is a season in which we keep receiving small rainfall events. Whilst they are small, they are not insignificant in that they continue to give us hope for the season.

May 2019

After a record-breaking dry spell, we were fortunate to receive some rain over the last few weeks. We have received around 25 to 35 mm from the recent two rainfall events, which has been  amazing.

April 2019

It’s that time of year again – it rolls around pretty quickly. It’s been a busy few months with plenty going on in the paddocks.

December 2018

After eight huge weeks, this year’s harvest has finally wrapped up. After a very dry year, Mother Nature certainly turned on some wild weather.

November 2018

We started windrowing some barley a few weeks ago. Due to the dry season, the barley crops are much shorter than usual, so we have been windrowing the taller barley crops and will reap the shorter crops standing.
