The Coopers Shoot property has been in the Armstrong family since 1882. Nestled in the hills between Byron Bay and Bangalow in northern New South Wales,Australia, Originally the property was set up as a dairy operation supplying butter to England and cream to the nearby Norco milk factory. As the dairy industry waned in the 1960`s, production switched to beef on their 200 acres of rolling pasture. Hugh and Heather, the 5th generation of thier family started managing the property in 1998 and introduced horticultural production into the farming operations.
In 2002, the Byron Bay farmers market commenced operations, and this saw the Armstrong`s switch to soley selling there fresh vegetables at local produce market. This gave them the opportunity to interact with there cosumers directly.
