Jason and Naomi Simmons are a husband and wife team, owners of The Overseer Saddlery. We manufacture Saddles and Saddlery. We have two sons, Jack who works with us in the saddlery and Edward who still attends school, both are a huge part of the agricultural plan. Our property 'The Gums' is south east of Armidale, it sits 1050 mtrs above sea level, in the heart of the New England NSW.
Jason started his apprenticeship in 1986 and then established The Overseer Saddlery in 1990. Naomi joined Jason in 1996 at the saddlery with eight years experience in retail. Together the business grew to where it is today.
In recent years Jasons passion for healthy soils has taken us on a journey of managing our own farm for healthier outcomes for livestock, soils and humans. Jason has studied with world leaders in soil chemistry, biology, hydrology and energies. Jason now consults to interested farmers in soil balancing and animal health.
Our working interests now include The Overseer Saddlery, a commercial Angus cow operation at The Gums, Soil consulting and the management of other local properties.
