“ The concept of BIOLIGICAL FARMING needs to start with a shift in one’s mind set and values, backed by the desire to do better, work with nature not against her, be more sustainable and profitable under all circumstances. I know of no other way to do this than by using what is given to us for free. Sunlight, photosynthesis, carbon dioxide and soil. All we need to do is learn how to unlock this potential and manage the whole system better ”
~ John Moor
Biological mentor and coach. Experienced Intergenerational Succession planner
I have been involved in Agriculture all my life as an owner, mentor, consultant and investor. I am a 6th generation producer from South Africa who still owns and operates a dairy business milking 850 cows on biologically grown pastures. I have also owned and managed an extensive beef breeding and fattening enterprise as well as broad acre cropping of maize (corn), soya and vegetables.
Over a 10 year period, I transitioned my conventionally focused synthetic fertilizer and chemical production operation into a biologically focused operation, that is in every way now more profitable, regenerative, resilient and sustainable. This experience and knowledge enables us to fast track the process for farmers I consult with to attain similar results in a shorter time frame.
A whole of business approach must be taken to ensure that production and profitability are maintained and improved while simultaneously achieving the ecological goal of biological advancement. Pull the big levers first!!
