We own several agricultural properties which surround our mining operation and form an environmental impact buffer zone.
The Cadia Farmland covers approximately 7,000 hectares and is used primarily for grazing (cattle and sheep) and fodder production.
We offer commercial Grazing Rights Agreements on these properties, which aim to enhance relationships with near neighbours and enhance the value of the agricultural land in the Cadia District.
Only landholders who are part of the Cadia District can be considered under the tender process, which considers factors including financial, safety, location, community involvement, environmental management and training.
We have tailored agronomy programs for each of our agisted farms and employ a local agronomist to provide advice about techniques for improving the production of livestock and crops.
Sticky Nightshade is a weed that is an emerging threat to landholders in the Central Tablelands Local Land Services region. We have a dedicated Sticky Nightshade weed management program which involves the coordination of spray contractors, earthworks contractors and allocation of herbicide to our agistees, as well as affected landholders in the Cadia District.
We offer Residential Tenancy Agreements for houses on Cadia Farmland through McGrath Real Estate.
