The family farming partnership of AG Schilling & Co was established in 1964 by Ashley & Barbara Schilling. Ashley and Barbara took over management of the farm from Ashley’s father, Clare Gottlieb Oscar Schilling, after their marriage in Sept 1964. Oscar and wife, Augusta, had been clearing and establishing the farming land since 1925. The homestead that still stands was built by Oscar.
Ashley and Barbara continued with cereal and livestock rotation farming until their son, Mark, requested a more management role within the partnership in 1992.
From this time on, under the management of Mark and wife, Merridee, AG Schilling & Co has progressed and evolved in many areas of the business. Mark’s leadership moved the business to No-Till farming practices and the use of GPS which has resulted in increased productivity. Keeping up with modern technology & farming practices is important to the business.
