Hello and welcome. It's always good to have more perendale people on here and those with a bigger bit of land :) Have you finished lambing up there?

Are you going through the formal certification process? Which certifier?

Hi there ,not registering as yet still reading lots of info ,will probably be with Biogro .Old farmer here taking small steps at the moment but at least he's slowed down with the drench gun and looking at alternatives.Nothing like a serious reaction to chemicals to get things started though.
There are so many farmers around here with parkinsons,ms etc you have to wonder where we are all headed.
Lambing still going,but by the look it they are looking after themselves ,good ole perendales.

Welcome to the organic fold. You have a challenging but rewarding path ahead of you made easier by the increasing acceptance and prevalence of organic farming.

It is indeed common for the most devout of organic and biodynamic farmers to have come from a chemical past, only to be awoken to the reality of their management practices by illness caused by exposure to toxins in their working environment [xx(]

Check out this thread for info and links but also don't hesitate to ask for help from the greenies on LSB :)
