Will Bennett of
Est. 1835

Ashby receives fairly regular precipitation and has very fertile soil. This usually results in plentiful grass for grazing, which makes it easy to keep merinos. The property varies from heavy river flats to native bush country.

In winter it gets colder with frosts common at night but daytime temperatures above freezing with only occasional snow. The climate in this area has become more extreme over the past 10 years with all conditions possible ranging from drought to flooding events.

With a heavy focus on sustainability, Ashby operates with the philosophy that they are custodians of the land. Covenants are in place on some native bush country to help preserve those areas. As primary producers, the Bennett’s see value and benefit in understanding the final origin of the products produced from Ashby.
