Our Produce

Regenerative Agriculture
Our approach to farming is to lend nature a hand, but let nature do the hard work. By rotating our herds, mobs and flocks over the pastures we are increasing the abundance and diversity of  biological activity in the soil leading to increased soil carbon, increased humates, and increased ability of the soil to absorb and hold water, acting like a sponge where the microbial activity works to feed nutrients in the soil to the plant roots.
This parcel of land we farm was once home to a thriving rainforest where the rich volcanic soil would have been as fertile as the best soils on earth. Our aim is to rebuild and regenerate the soil to its prime. It may take more than one lifetime, but the work has begun.
Chickens

Eggs are one of nature's Super foods, one of the most healthful foods you can eat, containing high quality proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals. Eggs contain 9 essential amino acids and antioxidants. As far as health benefits go, eggs help maintain liver and brain health, reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes and improve eye health.Eggs contain L-Tryptophan and L-Tyrosine the “Happy Hormones” which helps induce sleep and fight anxiety and depression, boost energy levels and generally increase happiness. 

At Grazed & Grown farm we are committed to producing the most nutrient dense eggs possible without adding artificial hormones. Our flock of chickens roam freely on the lush fields under the watchful eyes of their guardian maremmas.

We provide the best chemical and pesticide free, certified sustainable mash to supplement their diet. We are also working with some leading nutritionists from Australia and abroad to help provide high protein and high nutrient plant species and insect attracting wild flowers to their fertile pastures

If you are after a truly uplifting experience, try fresh Grazed & Grown pasture raised eggs. 

Pigs

Heritage breeds are becoming a rarity amongst pork producers as the market has pushed faster growing, leaner pigs to increase profits. These days the majority of pork in Australian supermarkets is imported, which has driven down pricing resulting in the closure of many smaller pork farms. Organic grain prices have risen over the last few years with the drought, which has closed down many other small producers.

 We value taste and nutrition over profits, so we cross the Old Black English Princess breed with the traditional Wessex Saddlebacks. Our pigs are grown a little longer and a little fatter, grazing on fresh farm fruits, pastured eggs and a certified sustainable mash free of chemicals and antibiotics. The result is a juicy rose coloured, full flavored meat, very unlike “The other white meat’’.

Cows



Our herd of Angus cattle graze freely on the lush pastures, with a diverse range of fresh pick to choose from. They are grass fed and grass finished, whilst moving around the property in a rotational pattern mowing down the vegetation and trampling in their manure. It takes about two years to grow out cattle naturally. In that time the meat takes on a beautiful flavour and plenty of essential healthy fats.

For most of the year we follow the regenerative practice of moving our cattle into small fenced off paddocks of fresh pick on a daily basis, however in the heat of summer we increase their area and length of stay so they have access to the many pockets of rainforest still remaining on the property. We know the benefit moving cattle each day into small areas has for the fertility of the soil, but choose to balance this out by not forcing our cattle to stand in full sun in the middle of Summer. 

Try some grass fed and finished beef and experience the uplifting effects the nourishing healthy fats make to the way you feel and your mental clarity.

Rhubarb

One of the main reasons why people cultivate and eat rhubarb is for its astounding nutritional value. It is packed with minerals, vitamins. organic compounds, and other nutrients that make it ideal for keeping our bodies healthy.

Rhubarb is typically grown using loads of herbicides to keep the grass out, and pesticides to keep the bugs away. At Grazed & Grown we have planted companion plants to help outcompete the grass & share nutrients with the rhubarb. Grass control and fertilizing is also managed by the piglets working their way through the isles.
