Where we began
Our grandfather, Roy Eykamp, was born in America and travelled to Australia in 1962 exploring the possibilities of moving here to farm. After moving and farming in Quirindi from 1964, he came across kikuyu seeds in 1970, seeing their potential for greatness as a commercial seed crop before anyone else did. When he couldn’t find the machinery he needed to harvest and produce kikuyu on a large scale, he got to work creating it himself and the first crop was harvested in 1971. Ever the problem solver, he made it happen, pioneering their use in Aussie backyards – and the rest is history.
