It is really important for Mulloon Creek Natural farms to have the best pasture we can, in order to produce the healthiest, happiest animals we can, and improve the health of our landscape.
So The Mulloon Institute has recently started a biological monitoring program for Mulloon Creek Natural Farms’ pastures. These pastures have been managed biodynamically for years which means they are free of artificial chemicals and have enjoyed applications of Biodynamic preparations. Recently, they have also been helped to rehydrate with the addition of swales, Keyline cultivation and even a trial of pasture cropping, and of course, have been trod on and grazed by cows, sheep, horses and wildlife. Have our organic efforts and animal management resulted in improved pastures: pastures that will improve pasture diversity, nutrient cycling and health?
