Currently Grant and Liz graze sheep and lambs for wool, along with beef cattle breeding. An holistic approach developed by Allan Savory is used to manage the farm and our lives, with the aim of helping to create biodiversity and regeneration of the farm lands.
As a child, Grant could see the degradation of the current agricultural practices and realised that this needed to change. Consequently, Grant researched alternative ways to become more sustainable.
He was introduced to Alan Savory’s work from Zimbabwe on regenerative agriculture in the early 1990’s. After studying the processes, a changed was made to regenerative grazing in 1997. This led to healthier livestock, more soil humus, less weeds, greater water retention and greater profit.
