Predominantly, making hay while the sun shines is literally what we dedicate our lives to over the summer months with contract hay production one of the main areas of our business.
We produce hay in the Western & Wimmera Districts of Victoria, South Australia and also in the Northern Territory, we also produce cereal straw locally, Northern Victoria and Southern New South Wales.
We have hay trucks on the road year round, hauling quality feedtested hay right across Victoria.
We also run a mixed farming enterprise spanning from Western Victoria to the Wimmera, we produce pasture hay, cereal & legume crops, as well as a sheep farming enterprise on our home properties.
Originally established as Jim Hoffmann Pty Ltd, we have been involved in the farming sector for in excess of 50 years and the hay industry for over 30 years.
Founder Jim Hoffmann operated a big square baler in the 80’s before branching off on his own, purchasing a Heston 4800 8x4x4 later that decade. Within a year, Matt Dohle had joined Jim’s hay production and haulage business, adding a ‘68 model Mack to the modest fleet.
The early days came with a lot of lessons learned the hard way, extensive hours of on the job training, a multitude of hours perfecting their ‘spanner craft’, and dedication from Jim & Matt, and the small crew of operators on the team during that period.
Jim’s son Jeremy joined the team in the early 2000’s, and recently became a business partner. Daughters Victoria & Penelope have both followed, joining the team over the past couple of years.
Son Sam has spent some time lending a hand during the busy months, preferring his profession as a ‘sparky’ in the wind farm industry. Jim’s wife Jan is forever part way through an extensive ‘to do’ list assigned, her children Simon and Cathy have each spent some time on the job over the years between other pursuits.
The business operates from an office at ‘the depot’- at the Green & Gold Farm in Western Victoria, where the majority of maintenance and operations are based.
While contracting is our core business, we also run a mixed farming enterprise spanning the Western District and Wimmera.
With a combined collection of experience and knowledge, together with a fleet of advanced hay making and hauling machinery, Green & Gold Contractors are equipped to offer top quality hay production services and product sales into comprehensive and established hay trading marketplace.
