Biodiversity at ‘Yallock’


‘Yallock’ has been in the Geddes family since 1949. Their primary production nowadays includes Merino sheep and crops (canola, wheat, Triticale and oats). The Geddes’ are committed to caring for the land, reducing salinity and erosion as well as planting trees – in the 1990’s, they planted at least 3,000 trees a year. The property’s woodlands, tree lanes and other woodlots attract lots of biodiversity. They are one of Holbrook Landcare’s founding members.
