'Wilton Park' - Grafton
Wilton Park is a magnificent property located on the banks of the Clarence River in northern NSW. It is a 400ha farm with alluvial loams and yellow podzolic clay soils and annual rainfall of over 1000mm. It has been proudly owned by the Clinton Family for over 40 years.
Wilton Park was previously a high quality dairy farm, where the cows produced such a rich quality of milk that the farm was fined by the milk company for having excessive cream in the milk! Cows producing an excess of cream is an attribute that we can now turn to great advantage in producing exceptional quality veal.
A primary goal at Wilton Park is to restore the natural ecosystem processes of the area. The restoration of Wilton Park includes the rehabilitation of the soil and several wetlands. The wetlands and healthy soils act as reservoirs to capture and re-charge the rainfall from frequent Northern Rivers thunderstorms.
When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
