Grass Fed Beef and Lamb

Running of cattle and sheep together has given us a powerful ecological tool for repair and rehabilitation of our pastures. The ‘Herd Effect’ and ‘Animal Impact’ are tools that we have used through our grazing system to repair and restore problem areas, increasing total yield. This allows us to grow all of our meat the way nature intended – from grass.

Ecological Farming Systems

Gilgai Farm’s ecological farming system promotes an increase in biodiversity to build a resilient ecosystem able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures, rainfall patterns and climate variability while producing healthy and nutritious, quality foods.

Biological Farming

By restoring a chain of ponds system and wetland areas we are rehydrating our landscape to recreate the naturally fertile conditions of the land prior to European settlement. Compost teas are restoring our soil microbial activity which has produced astounding results.

Land

Gilgai Farms, situated in Central West NSW, is Holistically managed under a Regenerative Ecological Farming System. Our triple bottom line of ecology, finances and people has enabled us to focus on soil health and its implications and benefits on animal and human health.

We take pride in producing Healthy and Nutritious Quality Grass Fed Beef and Lamb direct to the consumer. Our farms totaling nearly 2800 hectares are also home to the growing of cereals crops, native hardwoods, eucalypt mallee plantations and in the near future bio diesel production.

Working with the Best Biological Farming Practices we are restoring the Soil Food Web to increase Soil Health and Biodiversity.

The Grazing Management of a Simmental Beef Herd and a Fine / Superfine Merino Wool Flock in conjunction with ‘No Kill Till’ and ‘Pasture Cropping’ techniques and with the application of ‘Compost Teas’ and other Biological Additives is enabling us to progress towards our environmental and ecological goals. An added benefit in our multi-faceted approach has been the sequestration of significant amounts of organic carbon in our soils, in a short space of time.

Designated areas for native flora revegetation and conservation have been set aside and our farms are currently home to more than 180 native grass, forbs and shrub species as well as over 40 species of birds and 6 species of native animals.
