For generations we have considered our soil to be the lifeblood of a successful farming operation. Situated on the rich river flats in East Gippsland, the soil here is highly regarded as some of the best in the country. Plant health begins with soil carrying microbes and bacteria alike. Every opportunity is taken to improve soil structure, which sees green manure crops grown to be returned to the medium loam soil every autumn. By returning important nutrients to the soil we replace those which were removed during the growing season. Worms are always a good indication of soil health, and a stroll down the paddock with a shovel will unearth an abundance of life beneath.
