Our Vision

To focus on soil health using an ecological system including regenerative farming principles. Livestock are a tool to achieve this goal, the biproduct of this is healthy stock with increased yield production.

From time to time we will hold field days and open up our farm so that any interested party can see what it is that we do and why.  If you don’t want to wait for a field day, then please either book a farm tour or come and stay in our glamorous Safari Tent and book a farm tour whilst here for a more in-depth look into what we do.

Your Hosts

Dean & Antoinette Martin

We are both family orientated and have two beautiful girls as well as two amazing adult children. We love living and working on the farm. Our focus is on improving soil systems which will then improve our production quality. We believe in using holistic and biological farming methods to achieve these goals. We try to build experiences with our kids and therefore love to experience new foods and places.
