After years of drought, this harvest was touted to be the golden hand of Midas in returning confidence into farming operations across the region.
Half way through, GrainCorp are predicting a ten fold increase in in tonnage from the region compared to last year.
Tamworth's Terry Blanch has successfully wrapped up and is relived, especially in having seen none of the bad weather forecasted to come to destroy crops.
"It's satisfying, always a relief if you've been smart enough to get around mother nature," he laughed.
AMPS agronomist Alice Bowler said so far it was proving a good harvest, if a little off kilter with late frosts.
She said so far bread wheat was sitting as the winner in terms of best performance, with early sowed Durham wheat one of the "disappointments" as one victim of the icy hits.
"There wasn't much harvest at all the last two years, with grain growing's right down. From what this harvest has brought, I think the next few years we'll see people planning longer season crops early," she explained.
Nicholas Chambers, GrainCorp's senior manager of grower services, said their sites had held up really well in terms of storage.
"Around the Tamworth area it's really starting to pick up now. The Liverpool Plains areas are mostly finished on canola and growers are into wheat and barley."
GrainCorp has received around 182,000 tonnes, and are hoping to hit the 300,000 mark before the end. This is almost two and a half times what they received in 2018, and a massive 10 fold increase on last year.
"This winter crop is a very nice change from last couple of years," Mr Chambers said.
While growers across the region have run into storage shortages, it was nothing that couldn't be mitigated, according to Ms Bowler and Mr Blanch.
"People established themselves pretty well and made sure they had plenty of storage," Ms Bowler said.
For Mr Blanch, on farm storage would be one thing he would increase for next year. But if anything, he said finding licensed workers to drive trucks proved the biggest challenge.
