Crema on Lords owner Arthur Aube is opening a cafe in Bathurst called Ristretto on the corner of George and Howick Streets.

A familiar face to many on the morning coffee run in Orange, Mr Aube said a capable team would keep his Lords Place cafe running.

“I’m confident with expansion because I’ve got a good manager and staff under her are top notch,” he said.

Even with a good team, Mr Aube said regular customers would still see him making coffees in Lords Place.

FUTURE DISPLAY

Rawson Homes cracked the champagne and opened the doors to its newest display home on William Maker Drive.

It’s the 10th display home which Rawson has built in Orange. The first one was opened in 1992.

“We’re NSW’s lowest risk residential builder, we enjoy some of the lowest home owner warranty premiums in the industry and are able to pass that onto our customers,” CEO Matthew Ramaley said.

Mr Ramaley said the display home showed off accessible and affordable luxury from bench finishes to a butler’s pantry.

“We’re very aware of the fact that country NSW has a different set of requirements compared to Sydney,” Mr Ramaley said.

Annually, the business starts 1100 homes and turns over more than $500 million each year.

Mr Ramaley said the business started by three brothers, Mark, Peter and Lawrie in a garage in Dubbo 40 years ago.

“It’s a classic Australian success story, it was built as a family company and it sets us apart from Sydney-centric companies,” he said.

Mr Ramaley said the business had been through four housing cycles in NSW and was committed to offering a fixed price from the money a contract was signed until completion.

BRED WELL

Sean Quigley and the Cotton family of ‘Moolahway’ played host to Quality Wool’s Bred Well, Fed Well workshop recently.

The workshop, delivered by Jason Trompf, delivered practical advice for people looking to improve reproduction and profitability of ewe flocks.

As well as farmers on the land for generations, there were three ‘tree-changers’ from Sydney who had embraced a new lifestyle.

Some of the practical sessions producers got to try their hand at included condition scoring, feed budgeting, ram rankings and ram selection, with follow-up courses in these areas offered for those wishing to further develop skills in breeding and nutritional management.

A joint initiative between Meat and Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation, the Bred Well Fed Well workshops aim to help commercial producers, stock agents and many others to advance their skills in ram selection using Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs).
