People & businesses we admire and support us...
George Hamilton began thinking and managing holistically around four years ago. Subsequently, George has become a ‘price maker’ rather than remaining a ‘price taker’. He now sells his lamb products on-line and at Australia’s award-winning, most authentic Farmers’ Market – Carriageworks in Sydney.
Arden Farm Produce
John Polain has spent much of his life passing on his immense knowledge of agriculture and helping people cope with their finances. John and Kate raise (and sell on-line) ethically raised produce: beef, pork, chicken.
The Conscious Farmer
2014 Farmers of the Year, Derek and Kirrily Blomfield rely on their Holistic Context to guide their decisions towards what they want for themselves and their growing family. They have used animals to extensively alter their landscape (although it’s flat – 1% drop over 3ks). Their produce is very impressive and is being appreciated throughout the Central West of NSW.
My Online Identity
Madeleine Hamilton is a former local Mudgee girl who is helping small to medium businesses build their online presence. If you need a simple website built for your business - get in touch with her!
Ian is another of the Savory Institute’s Certified Educators of Holistic Management. Indeed, he’s the ‘go-to’ man concerning the Savory Hub starting up in this part of the world. Here’s a short video featuring Ian and his pork enterprise, Fresh Pastures.
David Lowe has led his family winery to great heights, not only with his Tinja range of award winning wines but his Nullo Mountain (high country) speciality drops, as well. David manages holistically and supports our efforts wherever he can.
Cargo Road Wines
James Sweetapple, as soon as he had completed his first Holistic Grazing Plan, bought some 400 wethers to create nutritional impact amongst his vines. Today, he’s saved many long-term inputs and used last year’s canes to provide this year’s growth for beautiful buds and, therefore, wine.
