WE FARM IN A DIFFERENT WAY

HOW WE FARM

The type of farming we do has many different words to describe it.

We call it Holistic Farming, because everything we do with the land and the animals is connected.  


We start by looking after the biodiversity of the land and particularly our soils.  We use Bees to polinate the flowers of the plants our animals graze on. We don't use chemicals or fertiliser on the pasture, because our animals do it all for us.  All of our animals are mob grazed, which means we graze them in compact communities and move them to fresh pasture each day.  Our animals follow each other around the land, first the cattle, sheep, chooks and Pigs.  As each animal grazes they have a specific effect on the land which complements the other animals in the system.  We are all part of one holistic farming system, (us included), and the health of the land comes first.
