DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA
- ABOUT US -
Allora Downs was established by the Tweddell family. Originally winemakers and grapegrowers from South Australia, they moved to sunny Queensland in 2004, launching a multi-award winning restaurant and entertainment venue on the Gold Coast. For years the desire to move back to the land had been strong, returning to their farming roots, and in 2015 they purchased what is now Allora Downs.
Allora Downs is a diverse farming operation, we grow spray millet, packaged under the "Queensland Spray Millet" label. The rich soils of the Darling Downs and ideal climate for growing millet has resulted in extremely high quality spray millet being produced.
We also sell birdseed, in both straight varieties or mixes for budgerigars and finches.
We offer hay contracting services throughout the Darling downs and beyond as well as sell hay. We also purchase straw/stubble from paddocks direct and sell the bales.
The property runs beef cattle under the "Karabuni" brand. The main breeds are Black Angus and Charolais.
All cattle are grass or hay fed from feed produced at the property.
And in 2019 we will start producing free range eggs (Bec's Cackleberries), and our hens will be truly free range... we can't wait to taste the difference in the eggs!
