ABOUT ANDREW PETERSON
Having grown up on a farm in North Dally I headed off to pursue my goal of spraying cotton in NSW and QLD. This started with a couple of fire spotting seasons in Manjimup working for the then CALM. Winter spraying in Geraldton followed and it wasn’t long before I was off to Bourke in NSW in 2001 for my first seat in the cotton industry and my first night spraying season. As with any agricultural region the seasons are unpredictable and a couple of trips across the Nullabor later I settled in Mungindi on the NSW / QLD border. A few years later I returned to WA to work the winter seasons in Northam and Tammin, heading back to NSW to the Cotton and Rice on occasion.
In 2015 the opportunity arose to purchase the spreader and loader that I am operating today, and with a change of circumstances was the ideal opportunity to return to my home town full time.
I am looking forward to developing this venture into the future and to put a new aspect on the service that can be provided and with around 15 years experience working in the agricultural contracting industry I feel that I am ideally placed to offer a professional and hassle free service.
