Who is involved in the business?
Sue and Andrew Williams, Green Changers from Newcastle in 2011.
How did you get started in farming?
Andy always wanted to be a farmer having grown up on a merino farm in South East SA.
What prompted you to start this farm?
We started our journey when we moved to the Great Lakes and wanted to be able to source locally and ethically grown fresh produce, which we had trouble sourcing, so we thought, why not do it ourselves!
What do you produce?
Organic Pasture raised organically fed chicken and eggs.
What are your core business beliefs?
We were inspired by Allan Savory’s TED Talk on how to reverse climate change.
What does it mean to you to be part of the Great Lakes Food Trail?
We really like enjoying working with, and learning from other like-minded producers. We get a real buzz out of connecting the community with local and ethically grown produce.
