Over the years, expansion has taken place. We currently have resident agents in Penola and Kingston. With the healthy Naracoorte Livestock Exchange having full support of South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales buyers, together with extensive on-hooks, on property and export livestock sales, the company offers many years of expertise in marketing.
PPHS Pty Ltd are members of Rural Marketing Agents (RMA) which has over 90 member private agencies offering a further networking tool and source of marketing contacts and Australian Livestock & Property Agents Association Ltd (ALPA) which is a national organisation providing continuing representation and information to members on industry issues.
In October 2005, our company made a further expansion into Real Estate Sales Consulting and Property Management. Due to our geographical location being very close to the South Australian / Victorian border we have real estate sales people who are licensed to operate in both states.
Based at Naracoorte our operating region extends from Penola and Casterton in the south, Kingston on the coast, Goroke, Edenhope and Nhill in the East and Bordertown, Padthaway and Western Flat in the North.
Within these borders lies a vast array of different types of country and speciality enterprises that run on them. Good rainfall allows cropping, small seeds, lucerne seed, hay production, cattle, prime lamb production, merinos, viticulture and horticulture to flourish within this region.
A major plus for all of these areas is the underground water supply that makes irrigation a big part of a reliable area.
Our region encompasses the wine regions of Padthaway, Wrattonbully, Coonawarra and Mt Benson, all of which produce quality red and white wines.
The World Heritage listed Naracoorte Caves also attracts large numbers of visitors.
