Gunnadoo was the second property purchased in the Southern WA region and is located near Jacup, West of Esperance. The local region is suited to the production of grains and oilseeds.

Historically, the Gunnadoo aggregation has run a small livestock enterprise alongside cropping. It has been converted to a cropping only enterprise by Lawson.

Gunnadoo is farmed in a sustainable rotation that includes the production of wheat, barley and canola.
Lawson is aiming to maximise production and sustainability by utilising controlled traffic, zero tillage farming techniques. This will allow the retention of moisture and stubble, to build soil health and aid productivity.

Gunnadoo is led by our Farm Manager Anthon, along with a team of permanent staff, and during peak periods including seeding and harvesting, they will be assisted by casual staff..
