The St Leonards aggregation is located north-west of the township of Wongan Hills in the Northern Wheatbelt region of WA. The local region is well suited to the production of grains and oilseeds.

The St Leonards aggregation was historically operated as a mixed farm and more recently as a cropping only enterprise. Under future management, St Leonards will be farmed in a sustainable production system with a rotation that includes wheat, barley, canola and lupins. St Leonards has recently been farmed using zero tillage farming methods and this will be further enhanced through the introduction of full controlled traffic and precision agriculture. These systems are intended to help to conserve moisture in the soil, build soil health and aid productivity in the cropping enterprises.

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