What’s Been Happening At Emu Ridge?

UPDATE on Emu’s & Wallaby’s

Our Emu’s have grown so much over the last 7 months as you can see in the picture. They are still curious as ever and even enjoy some play time with Chopper our Kelpie/Border Collie dog.

Our Orphaned Tammar Wallaby’s

It was time to say goodbye to our orphaned Wallaby’s that Bev hand reared this season. We always release our orphans onto our farm so they can live free without any restrictions. Its always a happy sad day. Wallaby’s are quite different to Kangaroos and Possums, they have very strong wild instincts, so once released you don’t really see them again. However, Alina the youngest of the four is still living around our shop.

Kapunda Farm Fair 2018

Bev and Coralie from Rustic Blue were just recently at the Kapunda Farm Fair near the Barossa Valley. It was a great opportunity to showcase our great products such as Eucalyptus, Emu, Tea Tree oils, KI Honey, Soaps and other wonderful natural products. It was pretty good weather and thanks to everyone for visiting our stall, it was lovely to meet you all!

South Australia has one emu farm and we are proud to be the label for this fantastic product. Wayne has been farming emus for over 20 years and we are proud to support this South Aussie battler, promoting, bottling and selling his Emu Oil. It truly is an amazing 100% pure natural Australian Product, which is what Emu Ridge is all about!

Emu Ridge believes in farming our natural resources in a sustainable way, promoting and selling PURE NATURAL AUSTRALIAN PRODUCTS.

You can purchase our 100% Pure Australian Emu Oil here.

Emu Oil has been used by the Australian Aboriginals for thousands of years. They have relied on its consistency of healing and therapeutic qualities to survive Australia’s harsh climate.

From the number of studies conducted it has been shown that Emu Oil really does work. It is one of nature’s finest emollients and moisturizers. It’s well known in the pharmaceutical industries, the Institute of Sport in Canberra, and is currently being used worldwide by sporting bodies.

Emu Oil is rich in Vitamins A, D,E, F & K2 and Omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 oils. It is very moisturizing and healing, it protects, nourishes and softens the skin. Emu Oil has the unique ability to penetrate the layers of skin so essential nutrients can be carried more efficiently deep beneath the surface. Emu Oil has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin and has an anti-degenerative effect on skin cells. Emu Oil will build up a natural layer of moisture whilst opening up the pores of the skin letting your skin breathe naturally.

MOISTURISER: Emu Oil can be used on all parts of your body ie hands, arms, face, legs, hair etc. Great for sunburn or wind burn. (Apply after heat has gone.)
MASSAGE: It is a great carrier oil for mixing with other oils.
ARTHRITIS, INFLAMMATION, ACHING MUSCLES: It will penetrate deeply and work to cut down inflammation, open up blood capillaries and promote increased blood flow and oxygen to problem areas. This is essential for the healing of muscle and joint problems. (Mix half Emu Oil and half Eucalyptus oil for an excellent liniment.) People have also had allot of success taking it orally as well 1 or 2 teaspoon a day. this may also help gut issues, see the above links.

ECZEMA, DERMATITIS AND PSORIASIS: It will significantly reduce irritation and inflammation of the skin.
BITES: Relieves and soothes irritated skin and insect bites. (Also works well adding some Eucalyptus Oil to the Emu Oil.)
BURNS AND CUTS: It promotes faster healing to these areas with reduced pain and scarring. ( Hospitals are using it these days for burn victims)

Emu Oil is extremely low-allergenic therefore ideal for sensitive skin. It produces no known side effects and in its natural state, doesn’t support any bacterial organisms.

OUTBACK SCENE: Wayne Piltz, Southern Emu, Moorook, with some of the emus on-farm.

 OUTBACK SCENE: Wayne Piltz, Southern Emu, Moorook, with some of the emus on-farm.

Southern Emu director Wayne Piltz, Moorok, who farms emus with son Darryn, has been in the emu industry for more than two decades and said it has been through some tumultuous times.

“I was involved in the initial build-up in the early to mid 1990s,” he said. “At that stage there were more than 100 farms. I found out last year that I’m the only licensed emu farm left in SA.”

They have 600 birds on the property, with about 28 hectares fenced into emu pens.

“This year we might hatch 600 chicks if we know we have the markets for them,” he said.

He has selected breeders, which can each produce up to eight eggs at a time.

Emus build up fat supplies in spring and summer ahead of their breeding season from March to June.

* * * * * * * * * *

If your interested in Emu Eggs and Emu Products see this link.

Emu farming helps to protect our environment. The Emu is native to Australia and can live in harmony with our land, thus reducing the chemical dependence and land clearance needed for introduced species. The Emu is the largest of all Australian birds, it cannot fly, and can run at speeds of 48 kms per hour.

Since 1991 we have believed that farming our natural resources in a sustainable way is our greatest asset. Eucalyptus is but one of the things that grows naturally on our property. The government is making it very hard for us to farm this way on Kangaroo Island! Our Wallabies and Kangaroo’s are culled (shot ) and left to rot in the ground. They revoked our Emu Farming licence and we are now only permitted to sell emu eggs for both edible and hollow eggs sales, not for meat and leather. We will continue to fight these regulations. Farming our natural resources is far better for the environment. We used to be sheep farmers way back in another life!
I hope you enjoyed this story ~Bev~

Welcome to the team Tristan!

We would like to introduce you to our son Tristan, after 12 years of building on KI and in Darwin, we are proud and excited to have him back working with us in our family business at Emu Ridge .

Animals

We have some very cute Aussie animals here at Emu Ridge. A recent addition is some baby Emu’s, that have more than tripled in size since we’ve had them. The pictures show them with beautiful stripes but over time they’ll disappear. They also love water and have been swimming in the dam on these hot days!
Bev has been an orphan carer for Australian wildlife for 26 years and she currently has 5 joey wallabies. Four of them are nearly old enough to be released back into the wild, and the latest Alina is still very small and gets 4 bottles a day. Follow our facebook or blog for updates

Volunteers

We have had many volunteers from all over the world helping us over the years. They do all sorts of things from serving customers, bottling oil, prepping food for lunches, making gift packs, Cider tastings, translating information sheets, maintenance and much much more! We thank everyone who has volunteered with us, its a chance to share cultures, skills and language and see they way of Aussie life. Its a big help, we really appreciate their time and love every one of them!

Larry has been hard at work during our off-season redesigning the still. He has also been doing some maintenance to his Mechanical Harvester, making new blades and cutters! Each one hand made by Larry! Not long now and we will begin to harvest the trees and make our next batch of Eucalyptus Oil!

This beautiful pic was taken by Hayley Fitzsimons Photography – Capturing Innocence. Maggie is grandchild number 8

All Natural Insect Repellent

The only annoying thing about summer are the insects! Nothing worse than relaxing outside and getting bitten by mosquitoes and midges or annoyed by flies! But this recipe is fantastic to keep them away! We also sell an All Natural Insect Repellent that is already made up.

Emu & Kangaroo Pies!

Another addition to our menu is Emu & Kangaroo Pie’s!
