It’s still early in the harvest but the 2018 yield on our plantations appears to be in excess of last year. Our clients can feel happy that their orders for our Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil will soon be shipped to them.

The tea trees are mechanically harvested to ground level. Oil is steam distilled from the tea tree leaves. All our plantation processes are according to industry Code Of Practice protocols.

Demand for tea tree oil is high and currently is in excess of current supply. This has seen an industry wide increase in farm gate price in 2018.

Buyers world wide make every effort to ensure that they are buying Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil. To that end there is more of an ongoing alliance with end users and the plantations. Our clients are long term clients and we value that relationship.

Our dedicated contractors are also ready to spread chicken manure post harvest. This is the only fertiliser used on our plantations and the plants thrive on it. The deep flood plain soil, good rain and sunshine help as well.

Our tea trees thrive on chicken manure. This natural fertiliser is spread shortly after harvest.
