"Thank you Simon for a really really great day. We are a mixed lot – rural from Cowes but not really farmers, plumber from McCrae and Financial Planner and sort of ex farm girl from Yarrambat. David and I have a number of friends who are farming so we try really hard to support our primary industries. We also have an acquaintance who is a wine maker in Sunbury.
However it was the Cotton Gin that captured our attention. What a wonderful story – one of good old Australian perseverance and persistence. I was relating it later this afternoon to my girlfriend who farms at Kerang and Corowa.
We thank you for your knowledge and patience and sincerely hope your tours are a success. I really can’t think of any criticism – or even a constructive one. You did well.
We would have enjoyed seeing the rice being harvested and if we are in the area another time when it is, we will contact our Tour Guide.
If you are ever in Melbourne and need somewhere to stay, we have lots of room at Yarrambat!
Many, many thanks
David and Jenny Stott,
Wayne and Norma Reynolds
Rod and Kareen Patton."
