Located near Goondiwindi, on the aptly named Carpendale property, is an amazing local company named the Carpendale Group.
Carpendale Group is a vertically integrated grain production, storage and logistics operation situated in Australia's Prime Hard wheat, barley and sorghum growing region with proximity to the port of Brisbane. A 5th generation farming enterprise that started in horticulture and grew into broad acre farming in 2000. Under the leadership of Managing Director Andrew Kluck, 3200 hectares of sheep grazing country was purchased in Goondiwindi in the year 2000.
Nestled among their various services they deliver is their creative outlet, Carpendale Creative. Helen (Andrew's wife) has always been creative, and after supporting the farm for years in the office, this agricultural lady decided she needed to express her creativity through her work.
An inherited sewing machine, an overlocker, bought corduroy cotton fabric and some wheat from the silo… and off her journey began, very soon family and friends were putting in their orders, and so became Carpendale Creative! Although she's had to recently retire her inherited sewing machine, she loves being able to share her creativity with every whilst giving them a piece of Goondiwindi in their home.
Carpendale Creative wheat packs are made with a mixture of love, natural products and “no nasties”. What a combo!
