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.

Ecological Farming Systems

Definition: Ecology (from Greek oîkos, “house”; -λογία, -logos, study of) is the interdisciplinary scientific study of the distribution and abundance of organisms and their interactions with their environment.

Our ecological farming system’s goal is to promote an increase in Biodiversity and in so doing build a Resilient Ecosystem. A resilient ecosystem is able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures, rainfall patterns and climate variability while at the same time producing healthy and nutritious, quality foods.

Our role as one of the organisms in our system, and our interactions within this environment and our effect on it, are of great importance to us. We believe we have a responsibility to manage these natural resources for the next generations in a conscientious manner. We recognize the traditional stewards of this land and acknowledge their role in the development of our environment.

We subscribe to the Haida Indian saying,

“We do not inherit this land from our ancestors but we borrow it from our children”.
