GUYRA RURAL SERVICES
Guyra Rural Services commenced in December 1989 when Scot and Aileen MacDonald acquired the potato and seed business from Kirks Guyra. The business operates out of the 'Bean Shed' on the New England Highway. This site has had an agricultural services enterprise since 1942 when the Department of Defence established a navy bean processing plant for the war effort.
From 1989 and the next 20 years, Guyra Rural Services has expanded into a full service agricultural supplies business specialising in pasture seeds, fertilisers and stock feed.
In 2008, Elders Rural returned to the Guyra district and now operates the retail section of the business which Guyra Rural Services had started. Guyra Rural Services New England Pty Limited continues as a business on the old ‘Bean Shed’ site and compliments the retail agricultural business run by Elders Rural. Guyra Rural Services still sells seed potatoes and has also established a specialty organic fertiliser business. Manager Campbell Wolfenden, has trained in organic farm technology and can advise which inputs are most appropriate for your farm productivity and sustainability
