Manuka Farm is located at the very head of the rich black soils of the Liverpool Plains near Quirindi in NSW. The heavy black soils of the area are renowned for their quality and as a source of all the nutrients needed to produce crops and pastures of high density. These crops and pastures are an excellent source of raw materials for our animal feeds and garden mulches. The bulk of Manuka’s raw materials are sourced from the area and made to our strict standards and guidelines.
Since the year 2000 Manuka has followed the principles aligned with Biological Farming practices, allowing for long term sustainable farming, as well as producing high quality products.

In 2000 Manuka Farm adopted the Biological Farming codes of practice and ever since, we have been cultivating our pastures and crops in accordance with these policies.
Biological farming is an alternative to conventional farming practices that produces high quality, nutritious produce with reduced dependence on inorganic fertilisers, pesticides or gene modification. It is based on scientific principles and common sense.
Biological farming focuses on building optimal soil, plant and animal health by improving the soil microbiology. It requires understanding of the natural systems that occur on the farm and how to look for the indicators that signal improper microbial activity. Insects, disease and weeds are such indicators. Conventional management dictates that these pests are removed using pesticides. Biological farming addresses the cause of these problems, rather than the symptoms.
Apart from removing dependence on pesticides, salt-based fertilisers, and gene modifying agents, Biological farming increases plant growth and yield, and ultimately it looks to improve food nutrition and sustain ecosystems in the long-term.
Our vision for the future is to continue to be a highly sought after brand name in NSW and to expand our range of products and take them to the broader domestic and international markets of the world.
Our mission at Manuka Chaff is to produce the highest quality products using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques whilst still retaining the traditional properties of our products. We strive for sustainability as well as improving our natural resources.
The Corporate values governing Manuka Chaff's development includes a set of farming practices that allow us to improve the overall asset, operating in accordance with the highest standards in relationships with customers, suppliers, environment and the community fostering a climate which encourages involvement and diligence amongst its staff.
At Manuka Farm we produce a variety of products for multiple purposes. We have quality Manuka Chaff, Manuka Topline and Manuka Haylage products for horses, Manuka Hay for cows and our Go-Worm Blue Ribbon Lucerne Garden Mulch to boost your gardens. Chaff products are available in single bags at our suppliers' stores or in pallet lots.
While our main focus is on chaff quality hay, we often have Lucerne, Oaten and Wheaten hay for sale. This is hay not quite up to the horse chaff standard but is excellent quality cow hay. Hay is available in 8x4x4, 8x4x3, or 8x3x3 bales.

This product is the mainstay of feeding stabled horses around the world. Lucerne hay is grown on Manuka Farm as well as neighbouring properties, and is stored for later use as the raw material in the production of Manuka Chaff. Almost all of the Lucerne used in our chaff is grown on the rich Liverpool Plains, whose soils are renowned for supplying all the vitamins and minerals required for healthy animal production.
Produced from the wheat stubble or the hay portion of a wheat crop, wheaten chaff is very high in fibre and is generally used as a source of roughage and bulk in the diet, but has lowest digestible energy concentration.
Like wheaten chaff, oaten chaff is very high in fibre making it an excellent source of roughage for your horse's diet. A starch-based energy source, this is the easiest of cereal grains for horses to chew, and is convenient to use for mixed rations.
Manuka Haylage® is premium lucerne forage conserved as a small brick silage for horses. 100% of the lucerne used to make Manuka Haylage® is grown and cut from the fertile black soil of the Liverpool Plains around Quirindi NSW. It's high in protein and nutrients, contains no dust, is low in sugar and horses love the taste.

We also supply a blend of Lucerne and Oaten chaff in one bag as a mix. We do not add molasis or any other product as the molasses masks the quality of the hay and adds to the sugar levels in the animal’s diet.
