Hazlett Family

The Hazlett family came to the Macarthur region in 1928. From then until 1985 they were involved in the poultry breeding industry. From 1970 onwards the business was in the hands of David and Robert Hazlett, who grew the business from one standalone site in Ingleburn to a national business. The business was sold in 1985.

David Hazlett’s side of the family has since focused on property, both in development and passive ownership. The family is passionate about the area and has contributed to a number of charities and services within the Macarthur region. David Hazlett is also a member of the University’s Foundation Council.
