Organic/Biological methods we use
We farm organically and sustainably. Manure is mainly harrowed back into the paddocks. In small paddocks it is collected and composted. Of course, we compost all organic waste on the farm. Most of the fruit and vegetables we eat are from our farm, from produce swaps, or from the co-operative shop where we sell our produce.
