Profile: Richard Winspear, Berried in Tas

This article is a profile on Richard Winspear. Richard explains climate and access to water were the main reasons for establishing a berry business in the Carrick area. Richard purchased a property in Carrick in 2016 along with 4 other investors and began to develop the property into berries. Today the property has 80 ML of on-farm dam storage, as well as access to 80 ML from the Whitemore irrigation scheme and a further 200 ML from the Liffey River. So far, berry production on the site currently uses 80 ML, leaving plenty of water available at the site to support future expansion plans.
