Hello – we’re Amanda and Tim Walker, the passionate business owners behind Yerecoin Traders and our online rural supplies marketplace Farmco.com.au.
As proud supporters of our local community, we’re committed to sustainability of our town and community. We are employers of a fantastic team of local people and are committed to ensuring a robust future for our beloved town of Yerecoin and rural and regional locations around Australia.
Amanda has a background in science and prior to moving to Australia worked in the field of animal health as a research scientist, while Tim was raised working on his family farm in the Yerecoin area. Tim’s grounding in horticulture has left him obsessed with making things grow, and he applies this knowledge to everything from managing farm and crop inputs to refining the application of agricultural chemicals.
Amanda is not only passionate about improving business outcomes for farmers, but is a devoted supporter of rural and regional business in general. Her active membership of local networks includes chairing the Wheatbelt Business Network and Victoria Plains Business Builders.
Our motivation is to provide a fantastic service in the WA Wheatbelt for both locals and visitors, and to help farmers Australia-wide by providing a better way of getting the supplies they need, saving precious time.
We are supported by our great team of long term employees including Elke, Jennifer, Chanel, Ellen & Hazel. We’re always on hand in our general store or warehouse, and look forward to seeing you soon.
