Jack McLeod died and leaves his heavily mortgaged family farm, Drovers Run, to his daughters. Claire is Jack's daughter from his first marriage. His first wife, Prudence, died giving birth to Claire's brother Adam. He later married Ruth Silverman, and they had a daughter, Tess. The two girls were close growing up, but were separated when Ruth took five-year-old Tess back to the city. At the beginning of the series, Tess returns home to the place she left more than 20 years before.
Tess, who recently lost her mother to breast cancer, hopes to sell her share of the farm and open a café in the city, but is disappointed to be met with a less-than-rosy financial picture and the open resentment of her older sister. Claire fires the male workforce after they are caught stealing petrol from the farm, and the sisters run the farm themselves, with the help of housekeeper Meg Fountain, her daughter Jodi, and local girl Becky. The tentative partnership is the first step in the reunited sisters' effort to heal old wounds, improve their relationship, and lift the property out of debt.
Three years later, in October 2003, Claire's best friend Stevie Hall arrived at Drovers Run to replace Becky, who left with Jake to run a farm. Weeks after Stevie arrived Claire loses her life in a tragic car accident, leaving Tess to run Drovers by herself with the help Stevie and the girls.
In March 2006, Tess and her husband Nick decide to leave Drovers to run a farm in Argentina. Jodi is now running the family property with cousin Regan, Stevie, and Jodi's best friend Kate Manfredi, who arrived in 2004.
In 2007, Jodi decides to go into witness protection with Matt, leaving Drovers Run. In Jodi's absence her part of the family property is given to her cousins Regan, Grace and Jazmine as per her "will" because she is presumed dead in a car accident.

Then late that year Stevie and Alex marry with Regan departing to study for her new job; this leaves her sister Grace in charge of the McLeod family farm.
In 2009, Kate Manfredi leaves Drovers for a new job, and Regan returns after a year away; after her return Regan and Grace's sister Jasmine McLeod makes a surprising return to Drovers, hiding a dark secret.
