Jeremy Story Carter

The Southern Forest food council will today launch its Manjimup offices with a great sense of ambition.

The council itself was launched in early November, and aims to bring together growers and producers under the one regional banner.

Executive officer of the Southern Forest Food Council, Allen Burtenshaw, says the offices will serve as an important hub for trade in the region.

“A Graduate of Excellence Award” for Kojonup farmer

Owen Grieve

Kojonup farmer Rob Egerton-Warburton had a recent surprise when he was bestowed “A graduate of excellence” award at this year’s Marcus Oldham Farm Management College graduation ceremony in Geelong

Rob graduated from Marcus in 1994 and has since run a progressive multi-enterprise farm to the southwest of Kojonup.

His services to agriculture include his being on many boards and of particular note is his chairmanship of the Sheep Industry Leadership Council or SILC as it’s known.

Christmas on the farm

Jeremy Story Carter

Christmas means a lot of different things to each of us – but if you’re out on the farm, chances are you’re going to have to keep at least one eyed fixed on what’s going on in your paddock.

For dairy farmers like Victor Rodwell, that will mean heading out Christmas morning to milk and keep check on the cows.

Boyup Brook sheep, canola, oat, and barley farmer Gemma Lee Steere hopes harvest will have finished by Christmas eve, and that Christmas Day can be spent devouring a turkey the family has been raising on farm.

In Manjimup, cherry grower and orchardist, Harvey Giblett, says he’ll be able to take some time away from the farm and holiday in Dunsborough with his family and a large box of cherries.
