Hakea was the first acquisition in the Southern WA region and is situated near Munglinup West of Esperance. The area is well suited to the production of winter-grown grains and oilseeds.

Hakea is farmed in a sustainable rotation production system that includes wheat, barley and canola.

Parts of the Hakea aggregation have a history of zero tillage conservation farming which has set these areas up well for a sustainable cropping only rotation. Lawson is further enhancing the sustainability of the cropping systems through the introduction of fully controlled traffic zero tillage farming methods and precision agriculture. These systems are intended to help to conserve moisture in the soil, build soil health and aid productivity.

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