What have you been doing to get farm ready?

General research and practical experience of Permaculture and sustainable crop production.

Why are you passionate about farming?

We both have the desire to obtain a yeild from productive land whilst restoring and beautifying it in line with Permaculture principles and our background in landscape design.

Best days of being a farmer:

Our dream farm lies within the hinterlands of Northern NSW or South East QLD. We produce an array of seasonal fruit and vegetables. We restore the land with small numbers of livestock on field rotation systems. We specialise in a few rare species and sell locally.
