Back farming…..

2019 we took the leap…

From regenerating the river, creeks and remnant vegetation we fell into farming the land we thought we would semi-retire on. Life happened… we didn’t like what we saw…. we had to be the change we wanted to.

In May 2019 Jorn seeded a mixed fodder crop of Ryecorn, Massive Oats, Vetch, Subclover and Barley. We applied one dose of single super – the land was a heroin addict for the former high inputs nasties that most farmers spread with ease.

To get us started we intially ajisted the neighbours sheep. This paid for the seed and now we have purchased our own sheep.

We see that regenerative agriculture is the kind easy to farm. Healthy landscapes, healthy animals, healthy people

healthy farming is….
