We are a family owned and operated farm that has been in the family since 1914.
Beginning as a fat lamb and wool producing property, it then ran a successful polled Hereford stud alongside a Thoroughbred stud, before moving into the production of Black Angus cattle. An operation that continues to this day. While our main focus is cattle, we also run a few crossbred sheep and have a small band of chickens. We are very fond of our horses who are a big part of our operation as we still incorporate the time-honoured tradition of doing all of our stock work on horseback and utilise Natural Horsemanship techniques in the training and working of our horse team. Our farm also wouldn’t be complete without our team of hardworking Kelpie dogs.
For many years in addition to our livestock we also ran a Jackaroo and Jillaroo school here on the property for people who wanted to experience life in the Aussie Bush and have a chance to learn the traditional skills needed to work on the land. For a glimpse at what our school used to be like, you can check out the link below. After 23 years of running the school, it was time for a change and that is what has led us on this journey to create the Leconfield Farmstay so people are still able to come and experience being out in the Aussie Bush and explore our beautiful part of the world!
Today, Tim Skerrett, his wife Courtney and their two children Blake and Margie live on the property and continue to work together here on the farm incorporating regenerative and sustainable farming techniques to better care for their animals, the land and the environment…hopefully for generations to come.Read the Country Life article
