We can’t deny the reality of climate change anymore. Proof is everywhere around us: weeks and weeks of bush fires in Tasmania this summer followed by snow in February, massive floods in Queensland inducing the death of 500,000 heads of cattle and undetermined number of wildlife, new heat records beaten almost every year, ice melting in the North Pole, ocean levels rising, pollinator insects going extinct, biodiversity disappearing… It is happening fast and it is accelerating. The only chance we have to reverse this as fast as possible is to heal our land through regenerative agriculture.
Apple orchards have been planted by humankind for millennia. We’ve created thousands of varieties and therefore diversify the uses of this delicious fruit for cooking, eating fresh, juicing, drying or even making cider, vinegar etc. We have adapted our apple varieties and planted apple orchards in a wide range of climates and altitude. Unfortunately, the standardisation of food production is threatening this diversity. What apples will be left in the future?
We've just started our crowd sourcing campaign on GoFundMe to raise funds for our regenerative farming project. We can achieve our goals on our own but with your help, we could accelerate the process and make this project resilient way faster. You can contribute to our project with a donation and sharing this link with your family and friends: https://www.gofundme.com/abundancefarm
We spent the last two days at Jonai Farms cutting our first steer and making sausages. Tammi has been absolutely amazing! She and her crew spent the first day in the boning room with us cutting our very first beef carcass. The second day was dedicated to sausage making.
