Members of the Australian Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform visited Mulloon Creek Natural Farms recently, including representatives from Fonterra, Ingham’s, Goodman Fielder, Nufarm, Bayer and Australian Eggs, to learn more about our landscape regeneration and rehydration work.

This unique member-based organisation is committed to supporting and improving the development of sustainable agriculture and productivity in Australia, and aims to inform and advise on the key issues that impact sustainable food and beverage production in Australia.

Their focus is connecting the farm-gate, manufacturers, buyers, policy makers, retailers, academics and investors to solve problems in the best interests of the industry, our farmers and productivity.

When the group visited the Home Farm at Mulloon Creek Natural Farms, they enjoyed lunch at the barn and a formal welcome from The Mulloon Institute’s Chairman Gary Nairn. This was followed by a presentation from Peter Hazell (MCLRP Project Coordinator) on the water cycle and our catchment scale landscape rehydration project. The group then toured the landscape rehydration Pilot Project site with Gary, Peter and Carolyn Hall (General Manager, Mulloon Consulting Contracting & Certifying).

It was an inspiring day with many inspiring questions and discussions.
