Holistic Management International board member Kirrily Blomfield and her husband Derek were recently profiled in The Weekly Times. Owners of The Conscious Farmer, a family owned farm on the Liverpool Plains of NSW in Australia, the Blomfields use Holistic Management grazing principles, which help with rainfall infiltration and greater biodiversity. The Conscious Farmer’s grass fed beef contains no GMO’s, no antibiotics, no growth hormones, no chemicals or pesticides and no preservatives.
The Blomfields, who were named the 2014 NSW Farmer of the Year by the Department of Primary Industries, were introduced to Holistic Management in 2001. Derek and his father Sandy, who is still a part of the operation, took part in an eight-day Holistic Management training course, and began converting their conventional operation to Holistic Management shortly thereafter.
Kirrily will be speaking at our 2016 Gathering, Cultivating Community: Land, Food, Health on “Holistic Management: A Global Movement”.
Cultivating Community: Land, Food, Health will offer thought-provoking presentations and breakout sessions on various consumer and producer interests. Local food security, land health, strengthening our communities and nourishing our bodies all included! We have something for everyone, so come learn from the experts!
Many of our acclaimed speakers are celebrated throughout the world. Our special keynote speaker, “America’s Most Famous Farmer” himself, Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms, will be sure to inspire us all.
We’ll also enjoy beautiful landscapes, farm-fresh food and be on the land with the animals. This is no ordinary conference.
Won’t you join us?
