Award Winning Farm nearly burned
On Monday the 29th November a grass fire, started by a slasher on a nearby property, nearly set SA's best Tourist Attraction up in flames.
The fire came within feet of the blooming lavender fields which will be harvested by hand in the coming months.
Thanks to Mat Allanson, Manager of the Lyndoch Lavender Farm, the CFS and their crews from all over the Barossa (Lyndoch, Williamstown, Concordia, Tanunda, Angaston & Nuriootpa), and private property owners who came to help, all of its lavender on display was saved.
Strong winds fuelled the fire that roared across adjacent hills threatening the farm, a nearby house and livestock.
Property management practices such as keeping grass low and the use of livestock on other areas of the farm kept the damage to a minimum
and reduced the fuel for the fire.
Minimal damage occurred but it is a timely warning for everyone that summer is just around the corner - well actually it is here!!
We would like to thank again all those who volunteer to their services for the safety of others - thankyou.
