Sabbatical Fallowing



We use sabbatical fallowing to maintain a truly sustainable Organic farm system free from dependence on imported fertilisers of any kind, or buying in inputs. The method we use involves annually shutting up a different 7th of our farm from Spring right through to early spring the next year when it can be trampled and eaten off. The paddocks gr

ow up to an outsider’s eye like an untidy, uncut, very tall hay paddock, then composts and decomposes.
