Agroecology

Our farm is run using the guiding principles of organic farming, permaculture and agroecology.  We work hard to make the farm productive whilst enhancing soil health, improving natural water management, reducing waste to a minimum and remaining welcoming for wildlife.  This is why we adopt the motto, “Abundance Inspired by Nature”.

According to the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD, a multi-year study involving hundreds of experts and several U.N. agencies), agroecology is:

 “the science of applying ecological concepts and principles to the design and management of sustainable agroecosystems. It includes the study of the ecological processes in farming systems and processes such as: nutrient cycling, carbon cycling/sequestration, water cycling, food chains within and between trophic groups (microbes to top predators), lifecycles, pollination, herbivore/predator/prey/host interactions, etc.”
