By the 1980s Grahame’s business - Northland Agencies Farm and Station Supplies - was working with farmers Australia wide, had conducted numerous successful field trials and had grown to become the largest distributor of Norwegian Ascophyllum nodosum in Australia.
In 2000, Grahame sold the business and moved on to follow other passions, but our seaweed story went on and he never stopped talking about seaweed. Although Grahame had retired, his old customers still regularly rang him at home to ask about seaweed and he was happy to freely share everything he knew about this wonderful natural product.
Fast forward to 2016 when an old customer, a desperate farmer from drought-stricken western Queensland got in touch, wanting to know if the seaweed would help her starving cattle. Grahame, knowing it would, enlisted the help of his daughter Liz to try source the pure, dry, soluble seaweed granules to help the farmer, but they couldn’t find the Norwegian Ascophyllum nodosum they knew and trusted anywhere in Australia.
