The BFB farming division commenced in 2002 with the purchase of Moore Park.

The portfolio consists of 29 rural aggregations spanning the Temora district with four satellite farms located near Cowra (Newry Downs), Jugiong (Dunolly), Nangus (Billabong) and Henty (Doodle Cooma). The total land area of the farming aggregation is approximately 52,200 ha, on which dryland cropping of winter cereals, pulses and oilseeds is carried out.
