Rosewood Farm values the importance of being part of the local community, and actively supports organisations that make a difference to Australian lives.

Since late 2017, we have donated to a number of charitable causes, and we are incredibly proud and humbled to be given such opportunities. Rosewood Farm has a strong commitment to supporting our local communities.

Before moving to Lara and owning Rosewood Farm, Stephen and Iming (Peter) were foster carers for the Australian Border Force Detector Dog Program. They have raised and looked after a number of Labrador dogs participating in the program.
