C and K Enterprises was formed over a year ago, but the business has its origins in a 15 year old working partnership between founding members Carl and Kurt. More than that, they have remained firm friends through the entirety of that working relationship – including the test of running cattle together!
Carl is a Beaudesert local who grew up working on a property, before moving to work on properties throughout Queensland and NSW. The rigours and experience of working on rural properties have sealed an iron will and work ethic in Carl, which forms the core philosophy of C and K Enterprises. Eventually returning to the beautiful surroundings of the Scenic Rim, Carl has run and sold cattle in the area, building a mutual respect and trust with his local community. A family man, Carl has a wife and a young baby, plus a herd of cattle to look after.
Kurt is a certified builder who has a background steeped in the timber industry with three generations of Sawmill operation as a family history. The Buchanans pioneered timber cutting in the Scenic Rim, so when it comes to assessing the quality and cut of timber, there are few more astute judges than Kurt. He also has a background in working on properties and with livestock, going back as far as he can remember, complementing his partner’s history to provide a powerful cocktail of expertise. When not working you’ll find him still working with his hands building a race car, or down at Queensland Raceway.
Mick is a third generation hay and dairy farmer with a long history in the Scenic Rim region.
This experience working on his family farm has given him a strong work ethic and great appreciation for quality fencing and landscaping. Mick loves the outdoors, bull riding and mustering.
