Amongst the native trees planted into the rich organic soils at Sunnybank Farm are Drooping Sheoak, Wirilda, Silver & Black Wattles, Wooly Tea-tree, and the Rough-Barked Honey Myrtle to name a few.

Trees on regenerative farms are important for soil health & water absorption, not to mention homes for wildlife.

 

We are striving for a world where humans are connected to their food and the benefits that are to be had from sustainable, local and humane food production. 

 

One of our key goals is to have 100 different species of trees on the property. Providing habitat, food and shelter for animals and insects alike. Biodiversity across all species of plants is incredibly beneficial for not just the soil and the animals, but also the quality of food produced off the land.

 

These trees have helped us move towards a healthier landscape where we can produce healthier food in harmony with nature.”
