Welcome to Neutrog’s Customer Spotlight section, where each newsletter we introduce our readers to some of our valued commercial clients. We are proud to share an industry with such incredible businesses and look forward to sharing news about the exciting things our customer are up to and the ways Neutrog products have contributed to their successes.
This month we are shining the spotlight on Mt Rufus Proprietors, a South Australian farming business that has been in operation since 1977. When Mt Rufus Proprietors was first established the focus was mainly on cropping and sheep, but over the years the focus progressed towards vineyards, with many more vineyards planted throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Today those vineyards are responsible for producing incredible riesling grapes which are supplied to notable winemakers like O’Leary Walker Wines which has won multiple accolades for its Polish Hill River Riesling. The farm also produces certified organic oats for hay and durum wheat, supplying hay to several clients throughout the north of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
To provide certified organic produce, Mt Rufus Proprietors must take extra care when selecting their fertilisers, with organic products being the only option. The farm has built a strong relationship with Neutrog over the years and uses our organic fertilisers including Rapid Raiser and Bounce Back to help meet the organic demands. Mt Rufus recognises that continuing to implement a sustainable organic farming solution while producing the best quality product is an ongoing struggle, but they also recognise the great opportunities afforded by the thriving and growing demand for organic produce in the marketplace and take great pride in continuing to improve their product.
In the years ahead, Mt Rufus hopes to establish itself as a recognisable brand in the organic marketplace and Neutrog looks forward to helping them reach that goal.
