Thanks for visiting us at Emu Logic, we would like to tell you a little about ourselves and our emu farm. We love regional Australia and live on our emu farm near the Warrumbungle National Park north of Dubbo, between Gilgandra and Coonabarabran in North Western NSW. We are an Australian home family business - Penny and Phil, with our two children Daniel and Nicole as well as daughter-in-law Deb and son in-law Dan.
We started farming emus in 1995, raising from 100 to 500 chicks per year and we currently have about 900 birds on our emu farm. All of our chicks are incubated and hand raised. Over the years we have learnt a lot about farming emus and we can certainly say that we are highly experienced and very knowledgeable in the raising of emus and the production of quality emu oil, feathers, meat, eggs and jerky.
Being on the road into the Warrumbungle National Park from Tooraweenah means that we always have people dropping in and asking about our emu farm. It has become so popular that we now offer tours and have our emu farm shop open. We are a true working emu farm so the times we are open do change with the seasons and work on the farm. If your passing by and the open sign is out, do drop in. If planning ahead to visit our emu farm shop check the home page for hours or contact us. If your interested in a tour book ahead as we can not guarantee availability without notice.
We are also very active in the industry, with Phil being President of the NSW Emu Association when it was operative. As one of a few emu farms in NSW we are frequently contacted by the media and we have all done ABC radio interviews. A number of articles have been published on us, our emu farm and the emu industry. We have in the past attend the local field days, Primex field days and Mudgee field days with our emu oil and emu feather products. We are also available for public speaking engagements on having an emu farm and why we do it.
Television has also shown a keen interest in our emu farm with Bushwacked, Australasia with the BBC, Sydney weekender, Travel Oz, a Japanese TV show with Ito Asako from Itte Q.T.V, an Emu Wars short film and a number of documentaries all being filmed on our farm.
Other interesting times have been with movies like Heavens Above and researches into Emu behavior, genetics and working with Australian Botanic Gardens Mount Annan seed bank in the germination of rare plant species by passing them through emus.
