Welcome to my farm
I bought my farm in 1974. It was in a seriously degraded state after the rigors of bananas and dairying. It was initially surveyed in 1917, as a WW I soldier settlement to farm and the clearing commenced soon after that. As can be seen from the original survey, it was initially almost wholly rainforest. The forest was felled and burnt. This clearing continued up until WW II when the last marginally suitable land for bananas was cleared and bananas were established as a result of the war push to increase agricultural production.
