Diversity in the Adelaide Hills
18 months in the planning, Infield’s latest project nears completion today with the planting of a plantation of Leptospermum Scoparium on a property at Crafers West.
Often known as Manuka, the plants selected for this project are indigenous to three regions in Victoria and to Alpine NSW, allowing us to explore the genetic diversity of our own native species and its suitability for world class honey production. Each variety was especially sourced by managing director, Tom Ayers, based on his own research and experience in honey production.
Property owner Marcus Nikitins said “Tom has been a great adviser and resource for our move into Manuka orchards and honey production”.
“He has helped us on the path for creating an exciting opportunity”.
