Paton Estate Agents in Balnarring

Blane Paton and his family understand the land, and have been a part of the Mornington Peninsula landscape since his parents moved to Merricks over 60 years ago. Their farm was focused on dairy cattle, but horses have always been an important part of their lives. “In the early days we rode horses to herd the cattle,” says Blane. “We never used motorbikes. In the 1980s I bought a Clydesdale horse and then we started showing the breed.”
