Restore the Natural Ecosystem Processes
Meet Glenn Morris, General Manager of Figtrees Organic Farms, producers and marketers of award winning organic beef from the award winning properties 'Wilton Park' at Grafton & 'Billabong' at Inverell, NSW, Australia.
Glenn has spent more than two decades observing, studying and thoughtfully managing the diverse ecosystems in his care. His keen eye led him to question traditional management practices, search for sustainable solutions and put them into practice.
Not only has he earned a Masters in Sustainable Farming but more importantly Glenn is on the ground 'walking the talk' with a blend of biological and organic farming principles combined with Holistic Management practices.
Grazing Management to Improve Soil Health
Meet Henry Sheehan, manager of 'Wilton Park', FigTrees Organic Farms that produces and markets award winning organic beef. The farm is located near Grafton, NSW, Australia
Gary Zimmer, author of 'The Biological Farmer', said 'Biological farming puts the fun back in farming' and at 'Wilton Park', that statement has been validated. One look at the smile on Henry Sheehan's face would convince anyone that he was having way too much fun.
Henry's enthusiasm for the eco-system he nurtures is a pleasure to witness and be warned, it is contagious.
