Did you know that after the ocean, soil is the biggest carbon sink on the planet? In school we learn that trees and plants absorb carbon dioxide and release the oxygen that we then breathe. But have you ever given much thought to what happens to the carbon after it has been absorbed?

I scream for ice-cream

We’ve been having a heap of fun making ice-cream in our brand new Emery Thompson churn. The whole team have been involved in this project which has made it even more enjoyable. Tom who usually specialises in tractor driving loves his ice cream and started doing trials months ago. Being an ex-banana farmer

Here at Mungalli, we grow diverse, productive pastures from well balanced soils and the Biodynamic preparations that naturally enhance the fertility of our soil. The biodynamic preps are used in minute quantities and inoculate the soil with a culture that leads to top quality humus production. This hummus  stores nutrients and water in

Yet again you have all proven how awesome you are!  It's humbling to see the support pour in as so many of you have expressed interest in 'Joining our Journey'.  We're so excited about what we can do and our future together! Equity crowd funding is a relatively new concept but we aren’t the first to go down this route. I wanted to personally

Converting to Biodynamics

By Robert Watson|2019-10-18T03:38:00+00:0015th January 2019|

We have now been practising biodynamics for 33 years. While we can now convert a farm over in 3 years, this has not always been the case. When we first converted over the home farm it took us ten years before we were happy with the results. For the first five years we

When I was a kid, our local town of Millaa Millaa was a thriving community.  It had a cheese factory, a sawmill and heaps of dairy farms. It also had a lot of young hard-working farming families.  On our road alone there were 32 children who hopped onto the bus to go to
