In 1979 Roger and Margaret Naird purchased Campoon Hill, a 1060-hectare, sheep and wheat property on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.
One of the Nairds' first priorities was to minimise erosion of the soil, which is shallow, sandy loam.
Two of their most successful land management practices that have put the Nairds closer to the goal of a sustainable and viable property have been later lambing, which has reduced grazing pressure, and minimum tillage.
Together over 16 years now, the ensemble has toured extensively on the national world music circuit and won two NAIRD
indie awards for their albums Una Sola Casa and Vivito y Coleando on Xenophile/Green Linnet Records.
Now 16 years later, they've toured Europe, the United States, Canada, and were presented in '93 and '95 with NAIRD
Indie Awards for the albums Una Sola Casa and Vivito y Coleando (Xenophile/Green Linnet).
