Short Property Description
We have 500 acres of Certified Organic mixed irrigation farm +250 acres of natural bushland with kangaroos & plentiful bird life. We grow mainly rice & run 500 sheep, 1 pony, 3 dogs, cats & approx. 100 chickens. We also dehull rice with a mill, mill rice flour, make rice cakes and package the rice on farm.
Organic/Biological methods we use
We use no pesticides or artificial fertilisers but instead use long crop rotations, sheep grazing and legumes to promote soil fertility. We also use probiotics to increase soil health and enhance the quality of our rice. The probiotics are made using ancient Japanese techniques combining beneficial bacteria and fungi to produce a type of soil yogurt which is applied to our whole farm. Because of this treatment we use no tillage to grow our rice and have a smaller carbon footprint.
