Armidale consists of 1,000 acres of prime country in the central-north of Tasmania. Owned and farmed by the Whishaw family since 1919, Armidale is nestled between the junction of the Liffey and Meander Rivers. Armidale Stud is situated west of Carrick, a small historic village 17 kilometres (11 mi) west of Launceston.
With almost 11 kilometres of river frontage, the farm boasts some magnificent alluvial river soils and an abundant supply of water from the Meander Valley Irrigation Scheme.
Armidale grows all its own lucerne and pasture hay, as well as seed crops, barley, lupins, peas, beans, onions & shallots & poppies for opium for the pharmaceutical industry .
More recently further development of the farm has been undertaken to allow irrigation to all paddocks to provide green pastures year round.
