Phil Lacey was recently featured on Landline ABC. He manufactures our Emu oil. It was a great program which highlighted Emu Farming and it’s sustainability as well as all the wonderful uses for the oil. You can view the story hereand of course we’ve got plenty of information on the oil here on our blog. With only 12 Emu Farms in Australia make sure you purchase 100% pure Australian Emu Oil for the best quality.
This is a great activity for those of you with children looking for something to do in the School Holidays, make some for Mothers Day, add a few of your favorite flower petals!
With Winter nearly here, the cold & flu season arrives as well! These DIY shower discs will unblock any stuffy nose without the use of harsh chemicals. Just place them in the bottom of your shower. They are great to pop in the toilet to! You’ll find the full recipe here.
We cannot forget our popular Vapor Rub & Eucalyptus Sweets which we stock in our shop & online.
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.
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!

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.

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.
We would like to thank for supporting our family owned Aussie business and wish you a festive season full of love and a wonderful 2018. We hope you enjoy our newsletter.

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 .
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
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! We are all excited to see how the new still goes and will keep you updated!

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.
Another addition to our menu is Emu & Kangaroo Pie’s! The Emu, bush tomato and saltbush Pies are made by Andrew Fielke and are accompanied by Bush Tomato Chutney, and KI Homemade Tomato Sauce & salad. Our local bakery are making our Kangaroo & Native Pepperberry Pies. They’re all delicious, so if you happen to visit us soon don’t forget to try one of these unique Aussie pies!
