Australian farmers supplying this brand
Steve and Tracy Evans run a farm named ‘Coomba’ at Rylstone in the Central West of NSW. It is 2,200ha of picturesque fertile country running 9,000 merinos of 17 to 18 micron wool. Some of the farm has been in the Evans family since Australia was first settled. This is a well run property with an holistic approach to the management of the land and an ethical approach to livestock.
Steve and Katie Kiss: ‘Currawarra’ has been held by the Kiss Family since the 1930’s and has predominantly been run as a self replacing merino flock. The sheep are wrinkle free and mulesing ceased in 2007. Stock numbers are adjusted to match growth of pastures in all seasons to maintain constant ground cover and improve soil health. The cell grazing system used on Currawarra has 140 paddocks to enable short grazing periods and longer rest periods. This enhances our native perennial grasses which in turn increases soil carbon and generates a stronger resilience in our landscape.
