SA dairy industry ladies were treated to an in-depth tour of Jurlique's organic and biodynamic farm at Biggs Flat on Tuesday, as part of a special day organised by DairySA.
Nearly 40 women from all sections of the industry, from employers, managers, employees, service providers and other dairy industry members, were given an insight into how the farm is run and what goes into its luxury skin care products.
The business was founded by Ulrike and Jurgen Klein more than 30 years ago, starting out in Nairne, before moving to Mount Barker Summit to now being based in Biggs Flat, with a factory in Mount Barker.
On the 105-acre property, botanicals and special trees are grown alongside crops such as hay and beans.
The tour showcased the property's greenhouses, gardens, biodynamic and organic processes, drying room and cellar door, while also providing samples of the range of beauty products, honey and teas produced on-farm.
After the farm tour, the ladies continued on to lunch at The Haus in Hanhndorf, where the women had a chance to network, catch up with friends and colleagues and share stories.
