We've been working sustainably since day one.
Pam and Martin Brook, the founders of Brookfarm, have proved that a commercial farming operation can coexist with nature from day one. It is possible to implement critical regenerative agriculture that works with nature, not against it.
The farm has become a biodiverse ecosystem while operating a commercial macadamia operation through regenerative agriculture. Brookfarm is home to native insects and bees, platypus, owls, koalas, turtles, water dragons, snakes, rare sugar gliders etc.
Using nature based solutions
- After regenerating sub-tropical rainforest several breeding owls returned to the farm. Each pair of owls can consume up to 1,200 rats and mice per year keeping our farm bait free.
- We use wasps (trichogramma wasps) to manage the population of Nut Borer, an invasive bug that eats macadamia nuts, eradicating the need for Nut Borer pesticides.
- In order to do our bit in slowing climate change, it starts on the family farm… Our soil is up to 60% more effective in capturing carbon because of regenerative agriculture practices.
From then to now
