The prestigious 2016 Farmer of the Year has been awarded to the Keith family of Rocky Point Mulching. The award was presented at a ceremony held at Parliament House in Canberra on the 10th of November 2016 and was gratefully accepted Rocky Point General Manager Matthew Keith. The third generation family-owned business focuses on environmental sustainability, renewable resources and recovery development.

Centred on their 600 hectares of sugar cane at Woongoolba, located halfway between the Gold Coast and Brisbane, Rocky Point Mulching has employed innovative mechanical harvesting techniques to utilise both the sugar cane itself as well as produce top quality mulch. The businesses’ product range now includes a full range of premium feeder and decorative mulches, potting mixes, growing media, sands and even animal bedding.

Congratulations to the Keith family and Rocky Point Mulching!
