Angus' family started farming at Billa Billa in the 1950s. What started off as a grain and live stock farming operation has now evolved into a diversified vertically integrated agribusiness from ‘Farm to Bag’.
The Woods family business is now into its 3rd generation with the 4th generation not far away. Dudley and Leila Woods moved to Goondiwindi from New South Wales and settled at Billa Billa, which is now comprised of five properties spanning approximately 14,000 hectares.
The Woods family is committed to “delivering agricultural innovation” for years to come. Doing things that are a little Left Field is what sets us apart from others, creating a strong business that can transition from one generation to the next.
The Woods family farms are ideally situated in the Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales region, which is renowned for its consistent yields and high quality crops. The farms are blessed with rich and productive self-mulching soils which stem from the brigalow and balah trees that are abundant across the region.
Natural bush land is scattered across the farms, creating a sanctuary for native wildlife as well as serving as a barrier between fields.
Faba beans play a vital role in maintaining sustainable farming systems. They are generally planted in April and harvested in October.
The town of Goondiwindi is ideally situated on the Macintyre river, on the border between Queensland and New South Wales. Goondiwindi has a population of approximately 6,000 people and was recently recognised as Queensland’s Best Country Town.
From Farm-to-Bag, our people play a crucial role in delivering high quality products. Without our staff, some of whom have been with us for over 25 years, we wouldn’t have been able to grow into the business which we are now.
