Each 80-acre block holder was allotted an acre township site on which to reside and thus was set up a community, from which the settlers were expected to sally forth each day to work their holding, the women and children remaining behind. Mr A E Baileys fine dairy farm is the last remaining vestige of the scheme" and "The 80-acre dairy farm worked and owned by Mr. A. E. Bailey is a model living area. A comfortable home adjacent to the main road overlooks one of the most picturesque small farms to be found in the State. The growth of paspalum and clover has created a dense mat over the whole of the property. The Jersey herd, numbering slightly more than 20, are the progeny of the Patrick stud. Mr. Bailey was a war pilot, and 12 years ago took up farming on this high-producing area, where the salubrious climate has done much to mend broken health for him. His farm, like others in the district, returns a comfortable living to its owner."
