The St Leonards aggregation is located north-west of the township of Wongan Hills in the Northern Wheatbelt region of WA. It is located in close proximity to the Wongan aggregation, and the two farm teams work together to share machinery and labour resources.
When purchased in March 2017, the property benefited from being a well-established cropping farm, with good soil health and infrastructure already in place. The focus has been on implementing precision agricultural practices to increase productivity, further improving soil health, and removing compaction to deliver yield growth.
Infrastructure has been built to support the scale of the operation and, more recently, to support export oaten hay production. A significant road network has also been installed to improve farm efficiency.
