For some farms this is a just a trendy topic but for a family that has been working the land for over three generations, sustainability is a critical part of our business. Our approach ensures the land has an opportunity to recover and retain the rich soil that is rated in the top ten most fertile places on the planet.
- We regularly perform crop rotation to ensure pest problems are minimised and allow the soil to replenish key nutrients.
- We use natural fertilizers and manage the land so that future generations of our family will still be working rich farming lands.
- We use sustainable practices to ensure our family can continue to work the land for generations to come.
