RJ & MJ Whitsed & Co
This farm project shares the story of succession across a multi-generation family farm in Corryong, on the border of Victoria and NSW, that has been managed by family since 1949. Beyond their bushfire recovery, there are silver linings in the regeneration of land and healthy farm ecosystems.

The Whitsed family farm incorporates innovative farming practices that demonstrate the benefits and effectiveness of increasing soil carbon, water efficiency and bushland restoration.
Certified Organic Dairy farm producing pasture crops, fodder and environmentally friendly dairy and beef products
Certified Organic & Regenerative
This regenerative farm system incorporates successional family farming, environmentally conscious food production, bushfire recovery and high levels of on-farm sustainability. It represents highly diverse market opportunities for growth and diversity across organic and regenerative farm systems.
Through the strategic use of Soilkee Renovator and planting multi-plant varieties twice a year the farm is endeavouring to increase soil carbon across the irrigated and dryland areas of the farm. 100 Tonne of worm castings are applied to the farm annually from the manure of our dairy cows.
By increasing our soil carbon levels, we are increasing the water holding capacity and efficiency of our soil. For every 1% increase in Soil Carbon enables your soil to hold 140,000 litres of extra water per Hectare which effectively means we won't have to irrigate as often and with the financial and environmental cost of diesel means we can reduce our footprint and increase our profitability at the same time.
Post Bushfires to regenerate the burnt landscape, soils and surrounding areas with improved vegetation, soil biology and understorey.
