Come and get a farm tour at KoruKai Herb Farm.
Come along to our stunning place in Pigeon Bay and be inspired. We will also point out some permaculture features on our property and explain some organic gardening techniques.
On KoruKai Herb Farm everything is grown spray-free and organically with an integrated pest and disease management. We measure the nutrient density in our vegetables and herbs with a Brix meter and do microbial soil analysis on a regular basis to help us with decision making.
We implement permaculture principles wherever possible trying to close the "loop". We have a composting toilet and use water harvesting techniques like swales on contour on our hilly block.
We keep Wiltshire sheep, ducks, chickens and weaner pigs. We have a Jersey house cow and transform the milk into butter, cheese and yoghurt.
Topics that will be touched on based on the interest of your group:
Our KoruKai Herb Farm story: past, present and future
Running of the Herb Farm: Harvest, Drying Facility
Biological/Regenerative Gardening: The Soil Food Web
Compost Making, Worm Farming, Liquid extracts
