Manager – Colly Creek Pastoral Company
Interest in farming and cattle was sparked at an early age with James being born and raised in Gunnedah, North West NSW on his family’s cropping property.
After exploring another area of interest, sports science, at Wollongong University, James moved to London for a time where he worked and traveled. On returning to Australia, the call of the farm lured him back to his first love – breeding and fattening cattle in their family feedlot.
Moving their young family to the higher rainfall area of the New England saw James and Meredith become even more interested in breeding quality Angus cattle as well as farming, contracting and pasture improvement. The move to Colly Creek Pastoral Company in early 2017 has enabled James and his family to continue doing what they love while giving them the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Willow Tree community.
James is responsible for ensuring that all Colly Creek Beef supplied to Graze Restaurant is of the highest quality, with regard to marbling, tenderness, and flavour.
