Borambil was the first property purchased in the Southern NSW region. During 2013, Mahonga Park and the One Tree Hill properties were added to the Borambil aggregation. The aggregation’s rainfall varies from 500 mm on the western boundary to 575 mm on the eastern boundary of the aggregation.

Historically, the Borambil aggregation has been operated as a mixed farming enterprise, but it has been converted to a cropping only enterprise by Lawson. The Borambil aggregation is farmed in a sustainable rotation that includes production of wheat, barley, faba beans and canola.

Lawson aims to optimise production and sustainability by utilising controlled traffic, zero tillage farming techniques. This allows the retention of stubble and along with the use of variable rate technology for the application of fertiliser and soil ameliorants will build soil health and optimise productivity through increasing the long term water use efficiency of the crops.

The Borambil aggregation is led by our Southern NSW Regional Manager Nick, along with a team of permanent staff, and during peak periods including seeding and harvesting, they will be assisted by casual staff.
