Milling timber onsite

Warrock is located in the heart of Red Gum country along the Glenelg River valley.

Because of the prolific number of trees, the farm is littered with perfectly usable fallen timber, exactly the same timber used originally to build many of the structures at Warrock in the 1840s.

We are lucky enough to have the use of a Lucas Mill at the moment so our workforce is currently milling some of the Red Gum limbs into planks to be used to restore floors, palings for the numerous garden fences and other structural issues onsite such as broken steps, window frames and wall frames.

The extensive gardens at Warrock are also dotted with fallen trees and limbs that have reached the end of their life, so we are also re purposing that timber with the mill.
