The Fletcher family came to the Rocky Plains area in the Snowy Mountains in 1862. In the year 1919, Bellevue was purchased and settled. Four generations later, and after years of perfecting the breed, Bellevue has become a farm producing the finest Saxon Merino Wool.
Bellevue, in French, means beautiful view and, with the hills covered in snow in the distance and the paddocks and creeks a step and a jump from the old farm house, it easy to see why it was given this name. There is something calming about the air here, the pure water spring just behind the house, the chooks running free with the sheep in the paddocks, cocky squawking and sneezing just like old Fred, you get a real wholesome sense of family and belonging here.
With a focus on tradition and keeping things local, on natural not industrial, the quality of the product is of a very high standard. It is with this in mind that Bill has specialised in producing superfine and ultra fine sheep since 1980. It has taken the last 35 years to reach the quality that we have today.
Bellevue Park has a 10 year plan to become a completely clean and green farm, where wool is grown, processed and sold only from the farm, the energy is renewable, and the jobs are kept in the community.
