Sustainable Farm Tour

Tuesday 28th May 2024

A tour of farms in Golden Bay that showcase some of the great initiatives that are happening to make farms more sustainable. See regenerative approaches in action including different ways to nurture soil health, mixed sward approaches, use of trees and riparian plantings, and mixed animal farming.

Farmers are the potential super-heros of climate change. Regenerative farming practices nurtures a healthy soil microbiome. This sequesters significantly more carbon, and reduces the amount of methane (another greenhouse gas) produced by cows. The potential impact of this is significant. There are many examples of good farm stewardship here in the Bay – we will be visiting 3 good examples that showcase a range of approaches.
