Biological Farming Roundtable – Simpson, VIC – Postponed – TBC

Event description

WHO CAN ATTEND? Open invitation to all farmers.

The aim of the BFR is to initiate discussion on biological farming, helping farmers explore innovative, low input, regenerative, profitable, productive farming systems. The group supports each other’s journey in an emerging regenerative agricultural paradigm where dominant conventional views can often be a barrier to change and success.


Andrew and Linda Whiting with their children, Harrison, Olivia, Cooper & Ellen operate a 300-acre dairy farm located in Simpson in the Western District of Victoria. Annual rainfall in the region is approximately 760mm and their soil is a sandy loam. Since 2009 they have been working on reducing their synthetic fertiliser and have been using compost made on farm, compost extract and in the past three years, NutriSoil.

Results from this transition have included saving up to $100, 000 annually on synthetic fertiliser costs, increased root depth, more grazing’s, increased number of cows being milked and less nutrient run off.

The Whiting’s are part of a movement called The Green Pastures Movement, a group of farming families with a commitment to creating healthy products, healthy farming practices and a healthy business that they can pass on to the next generation. This group directly markets their own brand of milk called Green Pastures.

The seeds with the bigger #root system in the second photo are flanking the traditional treatment in the middle. And in the latest photo you can see the more fibrous root mass with the plants on the right, which were coated in #NutriSoil at #sowing. ... See MoreSee Less
