What or how does your business contribute to a more sustainable NZ?
The Family Farm vision has four parts:
1. To produce healthy & nutrient rich food as part of a resilient & profitable model of regenerative agriculture;
2. To balance relationships between nature and production agriculture as part of ecosystem restoration, including a focus on soil health, carbon sequestration and planting native and food producing trees;
3. To utilise the farm and Eco Lodge as a source of education, accommodation and inspiration, allowing people to connect back to nature, food and farming; and
4. To be open and share the farm’s resources, building a community model that shows what is possible when we work cooperatively with each other and nature.
