Historical information

The bag is unused. These bags would have been used by the Snowy River Co-Op in Orbost in the late 1960's-1980's. It would have been used for packing popping corn for sale.
Snowy River Seeds started life as a farmers' co-operative (Snowy River Co-op) in 1967.


This item is significant because it was specially made for the seed bean industry which has been a major industry in the Orbost district for over a century.
