Conference Field Trip News

We have TWO EXCITING FARMS to visit during the conference this year that will provide some great insights into the practical application of Regenerative and Organic farming.

Simon Osborne and Nicki & Roger Beattie have kindly offered to show us all around their properties and explain their practices. The two farms are very different so we will attempt to get everyone around both properties. Here is what you have to look forward to:

SIMON OSBORNE

Simon is an innovative cropping farmer near Leeston. He has a particular interest in soil, and will be speaking about Companion Cropping on Day Two of the conference. But on Day One you will get to see his farm first hand. You can check out his operation on this short YouTube Video.

NICKI & ROGER BEATTIE

The Beatties probably run the most diverse farming operations in the country. We will be visiting their 13-hectare experimental block at Lansdowne Valley. This property hosts beef and sheep production (producing the world’s lightest wool), cover crops, and Weka farming. It is the home of NZ Kelp (a Conference Sponsor) and Blue Pearls. You can find out about all their interesting enterprises at several sites:
