The climate of this region is typified by long hot summers followed by cold winters. The average rainfall is 300mm to 380mm, mainly falling between April and October.
The hills of the Southern Flinders Ranges surround the area forming a magnificent backdrop; the colours are constantly varying with the seasons. The views we see from our farms include the beautiful Mount Remarkable, which makes up part of the Southern Flinders Ranges. The skies are blue and the air is clean – at night the stars are bright; the sounds you hear are often very distant. It is a lovely place to live and work.
The crops ripen naturally because of the plentiful sunshine and very few cloudy days. Although dry land farming in a low rainfall region limits crop production and grain yields, the warmer days and cooler nights allow the production of high quality wheat.
