We believe we are looking after the land for future generations and constantly improving and working on the natural values on which we grow our food. We are conservationists who work many hours on the land to set an example that organic is best.
We have always been interested in farming, especially growing our own food. In the last 10 years we have had more time to expand and spend more time nurturing our property.
We grow an abundant supply of organic vegetables. We spend many hours cooking and freezing our own food. We grow garlic, pumpkins, silverbeet, broad beans, string beans, zucchini, carrots, parsnips, beetroot and many more. We love growing Rouge de Mamade and Cherry Tomatoes of which we have an abundant supply.
Our farming practices are based on organic and permaculture practices. All irrigation is from rain water stored in large water tanks.
We practice strict crop rotation and rest the soil with regularly adding compost made on the land.
We are listed as “Land for Wildlife” which prioritises native wildlife. Therefore we have had to build large structures to grow all our vegetables in, so that we can grow food and enjoy the natural environment that we have created by planting hundreds of native trees for the native faunas benefit. We value our land and how we nurture it e.g. no sprays or chemical inputs.
