I thought Id share this great review we recently received from Nigel on EMU OIL –
(Emu oil for me has been a very effective aid for treating my osteoarthritis in knee and neck injury, back and shoulders following vehicle accident strangely a day or so after rubbing this product in the pain and inflammation settles right down allowing me to cease tramadol and norflex and anti inflammatory drugs I really believe emu oil is a magic ointment that does work give this a try you might be pleasantly surprised it also doesn’t have any scent or burn your skin like most ointments and doesn’t make you feel sick like voltaren gel can after excessive use.)

Emu Eggs and Emu Products

Our mascot, ‘Psycho’, has been busy over winter laying eggs, One Emu Egg made breakfast scrambled eggs for three, one cake and we still had egg  left-over.  It’s the equivalent to about 8 – 10 chicken eggs in one emu egg! We generally sell our eggs blown for $30.00 each, here is the link to our online shop if you are interested in purchasing a blown Emu egg, or please phone our store (08) 8553 8228.  Emus only lay over winter time so they do sell out fast.

Emu Farming is fantastic for Australia, not only is Emu meat very healthy, lean & very high in iron, but Emu Farming helps protect our environment!  The Emu is native to Australia and can live in harmony with our land, thus reducing chemical dependence and land clearance needed for introduced species.  Emu’s are farmed for their meat, eggs, leather, feathers & Emu Oil.

Emu Ridge Emu egg ready to eat

It is said that there are up to 12 different color layers in an emu egg making it very unique. There are three primary layers in the shell of an emu egg. The outside is dark green. The middle layer is teal, and the inside layer is nearly white. Occasionally there is a fourth layer, which is thin and rather gray, between the outside layer and the teal layer. The teal and blue are actually as many as seven subtle layers of color, each about the thickness of a sheet of paper. Very clever artists carve the eggshells that displays the colors of each layer to the best advantage, you do see them painted as well, we do sell them in our shop at times.

Emu Ridge Emu Feathers

The Emu Feather is unique  having 2 feathers per shaft.

The Emu Feather is used in Aboriginal adornments, in many different ways for different reasons depending on the tribe. “The Goodluck Feather”

It was also proudly worn by the Australian Light Horsemen, the slouch hat was often adorned with what became the light horseman’s most distinctive embellishment – the emu feather plume. This plume became the symbol of the light horse, inseparable from its legend.

Baby Emu Chick

This is what a gorgeous little emu chick looks like when it hatches. They are very cute. As they get older the true emu feathers grow and the gorgeous stripes disappear.

Emu feathers can also be used in arts and crafts. Below is a picture of a beautiful basket that has been woven with our emu feathers. This beautiful bowl was created by the talented Leanne Taylor – Aboriginal Artist. How beautiful!

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil

This unique oil is the only one of it’s kind in the world. It is distilled from the leaf of the Kangaroo Island Narrow Leaf Mallee (Eucalyptus cneorifolia). Emu Ridge is the only commercial Eucalyptus Distillery remaining in South Australia.
Distillation of the oil began in the 1880’s and dozens of stills were established, making it one of the Island’s major industries.
One company, F.H.Faulding & Co purchased Emu Ridge in 1923, establishing two plantations in 1938 for the purpose of systematically harvesting it on a rotational basis. (The Narrow Leaf responds well to pruning.) Most success, however, was achieved by individuals who set up stills as a seasonal sideline.
Our oil is distilled in the traditional method at Emu Ridge. The leaf is placed into a pot containing water, beneath which a fire is lit, steam carrying the oil is passed through a system of cooling pipes, the oil separates and is piped off into containers. The raw oil undergoes another refining process to produce the final product crystal clear oil.
Native farming is far better for our environment, no sprays and chemicals, a great renewable resource and natural product.
