In this episode we are talking to Randal Breen who, with his wife, Juanita and family run Echo Valley Farms, in the beautiful Goomburra Valley in South East Queensland, Australia. They undertake ethical, sustainable, regenerative and holistic farming practices producing beef cattle, pasture-raised pork and free-range poultry.
They believe in farming that builds on a strong and viable agricultural base, while maintaining and regenerating the local habitats of their diverse flora and fauna. Everything they do on their farm begins with a regenerative and sustainable approach.
Join our conversation as Randal talks about Echo Valley Farms, food waste and the benefits to their farming system and lets us know about the Echo Valley Community-supported Agriculture (CSA) and how you can be part of this program to buy directly from producers.
Main points in this episode:
‘To integrate our approach into our farm systems, we developed the ‘4 Good’ principles.
‘Good for the animal, good for the land, good for the farmer and good for you’.’
