Farm name: Koonkoobing Operator’s names: Phil & Noela Aitken Location: Mukinbudin Production: Grain: Wheat, oats, rye, rye flour, hay, sheep Livestock: Sheep Breeds: Merino Feed: Paddock feed, wheat seconds, hay Annual production: 40 – 300tn Grain Size of the farm: 2500 ha Vegetation/landscape: Mallee, Wadjil, White Gum, Jam, Granite rock outcrop Organic or Biodynamic: Organic – NASAA Certified Farming background: 50 years since clearing. Began towards Organic Certification in 2009
Other activities/business: The farm story: Phil grew up on the family farm where he helped his Dad work the land conventionally. After marrying the girl next door and having three wonderful children, Phil and Noela decided that there had to be a safer, healthier and more viable way to keep doing what they loved – farming. As a family they began their organic certification journey in 2009 and have since sold Organic Rye Flour to a Fremantle bakery and wheat into the local organic market. They run Merino sheep which they have started selling through the Organic & Biodynamic Meat Co-op. They also keep a few milking cows for their own use. They really enjoy farming this way with Gods help, going into the future.

Farm name: Seaview Operator’s names: Ken McGowan and Chris Armstrong Location: West Binnu Production: Beginnings of nut production: macadamias, pecans and pistachios. Some seasonal cash crop vegetables that can also be fed off after harvest to goats Livestock: Goats Breeds: Boer x feral Feed: Own hay, pasture Annual production: 300-400 to start Size of the farm: 5,000 acres Vegetation/landscape: Half cleared and rest virgin bush, heavy undulating, bore water and sea views Organic or Biodynamic: Organic – ACO Farming background: 11 years organic farming in Carnarvon: bananas, mangos, vegetables
The farm story: After floods in Carnarvon in 2010 and lots of damage to our property including loss of top soil that had taken us 10 years to improve with composting we decided to move to a non flood prone area. Seaview is 30km south of Kalbarri but is a totally different soil type and much cooler climate. Of retirement age we decided on goats, nut trees and some vegetables for an easier life. We are negotiating the sale of a further neighbouring 2500 acres which has summer pasture varieties which will give us greater grazing area for the goats once it is certified.

Farm name: Boronia Farm named by previous owner because Boronia grows wild on the farm. Operator’s names: Barry and Dale Green Location: 47 William Rd, Donnybrook Products: Beef and fruit Livestock: Cattle Breeds: Angus cross Annual production: variable but cattle should be up to about 15 this year – we are building up again.

The farm story: Barry and Dale bought the property as a wonderful place to bring up their family. They travelled prior to that and investigated organics in other areas. They really began farming organically in 1990 with the orchard, although they didn’t go down the certification path until later. Part of the reasoning was that they lived there with their young children, and wanted the best environment for them to grow up in.

The farm story: Grantly’s grandfather, Dolf, moved from northern Italy to the farm across the road with his family in the early 1900’s. Dolf took up their farm and cleared the land with other family members. All the clearing was hard manual work using axes to ringbark the trees then burn them down. Grantly’s parents Phil and Vi continued developing the farm and turned to organics in 1990 after getting disillusioned with artificial fertilisers and chemicals. Phil & Vi still live on the farm and help Grantly & Peta along with their 3 teenage children run the farm. Over the years oat crops have become the main production focus but Grantly’s passion still stays with the merino sheep.
The farm has 2700 sheep of which 1500 are merino ewes which are mated to merino rams to produce lambs for replacement of older sheep and for wool. 200 ewes are mated to Poll Dorset rams to produce lambs for the organic meat market. The remainder of the flock is made up of young sheep and wethers. 240ha is planted to oats each year to produce around 200 rolls of silage and hay for stock feed and 350t of oat seed of which some is sold as organic and the rest retained for stock feed and for seed the following year.

Other activities/business: Arthur is a qualified Bowen therapist and has a practice on the farm.
The farm story: Crystal Brook farm was established in 1945, 8 km North East of Pinjarra on the foothills of the Darling Scarp. A freshwater stream runs through the valley, hence the name “Crystal Brook”. Mr Denzil Morrell (dec.) established the farm from a virgin bush block which was heavily timbered. This development took many years to reach its farming potential.
Being concerned about the pollution of the Peel Estuary due to the run-off from heavy use of fertiliser and chemical residues, the family sought a better way to farm. In 1990 the practices of Biodynamics were adopted. This means artificial fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides, growth enhancements and animal health pharmaceuticals are no longer used.
Arthur, Olive and their family make the Bio-dynamic preparations at Pinjarra which are used by other farmers practising Demeter Biodynamic methods in Western Australia.
