ANOTHER major Millicent and district property has been purchased by food industry giant Thomas Foods International.
Settlement is expected in the near future on major Mount Burr grazing property Whites Heath, which has been held by the McDonald family for 81 years.
It is the third local farm to be purchased by Thomas Foods International within the past three years.
The first – measuring almost 972 hectares – was Glenross at Mount Burr which had been held by the Gordon family for over 50 years and was sold in 2014.
Earlier this year, Millicent’s Smith family sold Bradgate.
It had been owned by the family since 1962 and measured 275 hectares.
