Sharon has been involved with OBE Organic “since the beginning”, which means she and her husband Graham have officially been in the organic business since the late 1990s!
They run an organic Hereford/Angus cattle herd.
Sharon and Graham also own Merty Merty Station and have recently offered Mungerannie Station and Mulka Station to the market.
Sharon was appointed to the Board of OBE Organic in October 2016.
Graham’s father settled Epsilon as a bare block in 1955. Back then, there were no buildings, fences, watering points – nothing.
Sharon grew up on the neighbouring propety, Bollards Lagoon.
The properties out where Sharon and Graham live are so large, they have always been virtually organic, because they’ve never used chemicals or fertilisers.
Before OBE Organic was founded there was no way to sell cattle as organic – there was no buyer of organic cattle, it just didn’t exist as an option.
Sharon’s experience through the ups and downs of the past 25 years is OBE Organic’s number one focus has always been to look after producers as best as they can.
Sharon and Graham are proud to be able to produce and supply to the world, a product that is free of any chemicals.
Now-a-days many people are concerned with how their health may be affected by what they eat so being able to supply an organic certified product is very important to them.
Sharon and Graham have four children. Their eldest son Luke died tragically in an aircraft accident in 2013. Their daughter Jaymee lives on a farm on the Yorke Peninsula.
Their daughter Carly lives on a station near White Cliffs in NSW and their son Clayton lives on Epsilon Station.
