Our family hails from Manresa, a 40,000-acre property of pulled scrub and buffle grass in Western Queensland. Manresa was certified organic in 1995, making us one of the first to be certified. We enjoyed life on Manresa but knew we wanted a blue-ribbon property closer to city markets. We bought Tulloch Brae in 2004 and now have 620 organic certified acres 18 miles from Toowoomba.
We’ve been selling around 4500 organic animals a year since then and moved into the US market in 2011. At first, we were only in a few stores but we’re now distributed in 372 ShopRite outlets between New York and Philadelphia.
The Clayton’s Organic range is very successful in the US and we are keen to expand and build on our knowledge and contacts in this market.
