Croydon Farm is owned and managed by brothers, Bruce and Ross Ley, located 40 kilometres east of Geraldton on the Eradu sand plain. The farm’s 8,000 hectare cropping programme includes a mix of wheat, lupins and canola. In late 2010, a new shed was required to securely store the modern farm machinery fleet and keep it out of the weather. A fully enclosed configuration with full width open end door accessibility formed part of the requested specifications.
