Regenerative farming

Our hope is to restore the balance between nature, society and economic activity. To find a better way to take from the land sustainably and give back to it.

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty

What’s a regenerative farming model look like?

It’s everyone at The Farm sharing a common goal to restore the land by improving biodiversity, eliminating the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides and having a positive impact on the environment and local communities.

It’s all working as one to create something not just for ourselves and our businesses – but for the greater good.

It’s combining ideas, dreams and talents to forge alternative directions and ventures in regenerative farming practices to benefit the people and the planet.

This model is not new, but it challenges current systems and structures. Structures where farmers operate in silos. Where progress comes at the expense of the land we are taking from.

At Uncommon Folk we believe there has to be a better way. A way that can harness minds, collective spirits and sustainable farming practices so that ventures can flourish while creating thriving local communities and food bowls.

It’s an uncommon way of operating a farm.

And that’s why we love it.

The bigger picture: agroecology

To work towards creating sustainable local food systems you have to take a big picture approach. This is where the 13 Principles of Agroecology come in. This set of globally recognised principles factor in the ecological, sociocultural, technological, economic and political dimensions of food systems, from production to consumption. They are informing every step we take at The Farm – both successes that take us forward or mistakes we need to learn from so we can try again.
