You might have gathered from the name that we are about trying to do things differently. We want to challenge traditional ways of thinking. But mostly we're all about getting things done to benefit people and the planet. Sometimes quietly. Sometimes by rattling the cage. But always with respect and a strong sense of purpose.
We just believe in having a go, taking a chance, making mistakes and looking for a better way. It’s what drives our passionate collective of farmers at The Farm on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula; our place of dreaming and doing for breaking new ground in regenerative farming and land sharing.
It’s up to all of us to make the most of the time we have now and for future generations. To contribute positively to the world as best as we can, and to laugh and love while we do it.
But most importantly we must never lose hope because that’s our job as uncommon folk.
To create a fairer and more equitable place where opportunities and resources are more evenly shared. Where humanity can live sustainably on earth and not at the expense of other creatures and the planet at large.
On May 25 we officially launched Agricola, the new name for the collective of farmers sharing the land and resources at The Farm on Main Ridge in the Mornington Peninsula.Read more

We’re a big believer that actions speak louder than words. So given that we talk a lot about the impact we want to achieve, we better back it up with some measurable outcomes. And put it out there for all to see.Read more
So here’s the thing. We know we can’t do this alone; where’s the fun in that? It is going to take a tribe of Uncommon Folksters to make the meaningful change that our world is calling for. So how can we work together we hear you ask?
Maybe you’re a farmer looking for an opportunity, or a landowner interested in how our model could work for you? Are you searching for a different way of thinking and keen to see what we’ve learnt so far? It could just be that what we’re trying to achieve for people and the planet has lit a spark in you and you want to know how to get involved.
