Emu Ridge turns 30
EMU RIDGE 30th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS will be celebrated on the 10th April 2021
RSVP by the 5th April.
Don Burke officially opened Emu Ridge on the 10th of April 1992 after we had bought down the old MacGillivray Post Office from the farm house. Our 3 kids used to have a ball at the distillery, it was their playground! Wow how things have changed, they now have children of their own and its there playground! We are not really sure when we really started Emu Ridge, sometime after Tiffany was born which was the 3rd of January 1991. To begin with Larry built the still and then we had a caravan and used to sell our oils from there and when we weren’t open there was a sign directing people to our house and we sold visitors eucalyptus oil and souvenirs that I had made from our china cabinet in the lounge room!
It’s funny how Day by Day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different!
We can all go through life working hard and keeping busy. It’s so important to look back and reflect on how life has changed. Businesses grow, the kids get older, grandchildren come along. Certainly for us since we opened in April 1991 a lot has changed, and we are proud of where we are today 🙂
Our children are all now Directors of our company which is nice, and Choppa our Kelpie is the meeter and greeter!
Our family and our grandkids
