Growing up in rural NSW on a traditional sheep and crop farming enterprise, Amy Watson is no stranger to the challenges that face the agriculture industry in Australia. After graduating from UQ Gatton with a Bachelor of Applied Science, Amy gained experience in various roles in the veterinary industry, including animal nutrition. From there Amy worked in a laboratory as a technician and technical officer in the bauxite and alumina industry in the Northern Territory.
Now living in the Mary Valley, Amy and her husband, Rory own and operate Gilldora Grove, a certified organic lime orchard. Growing Tahitian limes and Kaffir lime leaves, Amy and her family also run cattle and a regenerative agriculture contracting service.
Amy is passionate about healthy food systems and regenerative farm practices and loves to connect and collaborate with other farmers in the region, offering contract services applying biology and seeding to client’s farms.
