They produce Superfine Merino wool from Saxon Poll Merino sheep. There last clip was processed here in Australia, and spun in New Zealand. Since 1979 the family adopted Permaculture principles and practices on the farm. Since doing so, there has been a dramatic return of Murnong (Yam Daisy), which is indigenous plant to the area.
