TWO years ago it was a paddock like many others in the Mallee in late January - large, flat and dusty with hundreds of rows of wheat stubble poking upwards after the harvest. But two harvests, a few working bees and $500,000 of investment later, it has been totally transformed.
Now it's an industrial site capable of storing about 120,000 tonnes of grain in bunkers and silos.
The paddock is home to the new Berriwillock Grain co-operative, a farmer-owned organisation finding a niche alongside the grain industry's big players such as AWB and GrainCorp.
