Why Are We Doing This?

G’day Folks,

We just copped 90mm of rain over night...

It’s 5:24pm Thursday and as I type the rain is belting down again, all this after a measly 4 days of sunshine.

Laying awake at night listening to the pounding on the rooftop makes us nervous about what we'll wake up too.

After losing so much to multiple floods and the continuous rain over the last 2 years…

It's hard to relax and enjoy the sound of rain on the roof like we did when we lived in the city.

Why Are We Doing This?

It's a question we ask ourselves every time the going gets tough…But it is in answering this question we are fuelled to keep going!

Farming is bloody tough...It's no joke...

It's the hardest thing we have ever done in our lives.

So why do it then? What’s the point?

Are we just wasting our time trying to change the way food is produce... Are we really going to achieve anything…

When we embarked on this journey, we weren’t trying to help save the world, our aspirations were much more selfish.

We had our rose tinted glasses on…

A romantic vision of living on the land with our family, a simpler life…

But also a life with meaning.

In search for meaning we found regenerative farming, through this we saw a new world that we wanted to be a part of.

We were moved by the group of people who believe there is a better way to produce food.

We didn’t have to continue to rely on chemicals...

We didn’t have to destroy nature and...

We could improve the health of humans through improving the health of our soil.

It's in these shared beliefs we draw our energy, it's in the sacrifices countless others have made with no reward or recognition we show our gratitude...

By staying at it...

Even during those moments when all you want to do is give up.

What will happen if this movement doesn’t stay at it?

And we stick with the status quo, that being conventional farming which produces most of the food you see at the supermarket?

The answer is one not being talked about enough…

We will eventually run out of topsoil to grow that food...

It doesn’t need to be anymore complicated than this.

It's very like our dependence on oil and gas, if we don’t find an alternative, we will in time, run out.

Our soil is being treated exactly the same way...

It's being treated as a commodity to be mined and extracted for maximum profit...

With little or no realisation, that it is not a renewable source based on the conventional farming methods.

Elon Musk (Founder of Tesla Electric Vehicles) was at an oil conference, the crowd, full of executives from the globes major oil companies. He was being interviewed because his cars don’t need oil or gas.

They bombard him with examples of why the world could not survive without oil and why it would be around for a very long time.

Elon summarised it like this “What is the thing that will actually work, using a non-renewable resource will not work, so we must find an alternative”.

So that’s why we’re still here. There has to be a better way!

We must find an alternative!

We and many others are grinding away day by day to find that alternative.

We do it because we care about the type of world we pass onto the next generation.

And frankly, we don’t want to lay on our death bed knowing we didn’t try our best to change something that is blindingly fucking obvious and can’t go being ignored any longer.

There’s another reason we're still here...

And it's as important if not more important...

It's because of people like you, people who understand they're paying for more than a box of veggies.

You're using your money to cast your vote to the world you wish to help create...

You're investing in a research project that’s trying to find an alternative...You're a part of something special.

There is no failure in this endeavour...

Not in the long term...

What we learn through this journey will be a small piece of what shapes the future and if our intentions are good and honest, the future can only be a little brighter.

And let’s not forget, while you're casting your vote to help the planet, you're also getting some amazingly fresh, tasty fruit and vegetables in the process. Win-win!

Big Love,
