Producer Profiles - Misty Creek Agroforestry

 

img_8008-2

We need more young farmers! The average age of a farmer in this country is 54 years of age. Luckily there is renewed interest in agriculture as people are becoming more aware of the need for healthy food, connection to nature and environmental responsibility. As the market grows for food produced by regenerative principles and the economics of these methodologies are finally accepted we will see a huge shift in who grows our food and how.

In Booyung, just down the road from Harvest, I visited Misty Creek Farm recently. I was super inspired by what I experienced and am proud to introduce you all to Tom and Nicole who are the power couple behind the name.

This week they are supplying a radish and Tokyo turnip bunches for our vege boxes.

Here's Tom's elevator pitch...

Misty Creek is a young Syntropic Agroforestry Farm, where plants are positioned together in time and space to build a community that flourishes. This type of farming mimics the natural structure of the rainforest, and focuses foremost on ecology. Those that eat our produce are supporting an economically viable way to return our local area to forest!
