Heath Boseley and his wife, Rebecca run Pinaroo Fertiliser Depot in the Southern Mallee. They deliver to commercial and family owned horticulture and broadachre farms across the sprawling Mallee region from the South Australia side of the border into North western Victoria. Heath and his wife took over the family business, founded by his parents in 1971, seven years ago. In the beginning, his father, Vincent, lugged 80-pound bags of fertiliser which were sewn up and delivered to local farms, many of which still grow carrots, onions and potatoes today. That process, four decades later, has drastically changed. Carrying fertilliser is now done in bulk with a truck and dog trailer with a 485 and upwards horsepower prime mover.
