Welcome to our website!

In 1993, Jenny and Simon Chard started “The Dairy Shop”, designing and installing milking machines as well as manufacturing and building dairy milking sheds throughout S.A. and Victoria.

Using the expertise developed during our early years, the business was later expanded to encompass irrigation design, manufacture and installation. At that time the name changed to “The Dairy & Irrigation Shop” and in 1996, moved into larger premises in Mt. Compass.

Then in 2004 the business undertook a further change and re-focus. The dairy side was sold and the business changed to  become a combination of hardware, rural and irrigation products.

Reflecting the need to constantly monitor the market environment and local needs, HRI has once again reviewed its position and business mix.

As a result in 2009 our business, once again, entered another exciting phase in its evolution. The name change to HRI – Ag & Irrigation, to better describe what our business actually does.

Our new direction is as a result of significant research to identify where HRI needs to position itself to best service its market going forward.

Our name reflects our core areas of commitment to servicing the new growth areas with our region.

The provision of services which focus on farm practices and production improvement, along with increasing numbers of lifestyle farmers will, for the first time, be offered by HRI.

We have purchased new equipment, employed University qualified Agronomists, with years of infield experience and formed partnerships with various contracting companies which will see us offering a comprehensive package and a broader range of products, to our customers.

Welcome to our site and we hope you find it helpful.

Kindest regards,

Jenny & Simon Chard
