Spring water is pumped from the under ground

The dams constructed provide an ecosystem for Black Swans,

geese & many other bird life to reside

and grow.

Our Trees are constantly monitored & analysed to ensure proper tree nutrition and health. This not only reduces the amount of treatments required to maintain a crop but also increases potential to produce a premium quality piece of fruit. This monitoring helps us to have more accurate control over our use of power, water and fertilizers.
