Brief History

Our story…….
We are a family of 4, Adam, Tiffany, Elie and Zoe.
Adam went through his first family succession in 2015 which saw him go into partnership with one of his brothers in land. From here we ran our own sperate cattle breeding businesses. We also managed another property for a larger cattle company, who pushed us to apply for pioneer project. We were lucky enough to be accepted into project, which gave us great knowledge and assistance to improve our business. We started our second succession in 2020. Which lead us to buying Cunnyana solely ours on the 25th February 2021. Cunnyana is a 30,378-ac property, 8 hours away from where we were at Nebo. We joined into EL in 2021. Our Executive Link board has given us the extra support we needed on this big move. We have done a major water project and some fencing improvements in the last 12 months. Our aim is to have the property running at high production. While also keeping good ground cover.
