Testimonial: "As part of our LRF advice, Tim Scott was able to coordinate a range of experts to come on-site covering topics of interest that will affect our enterprise’s competitiveness in a Carbon Neutral future from large-scale Renewable Energy to Carbon & Ecology to Non-synthetic Agronomy. His report gave an overview of where opportunities may lie while re-iterating our long-standing belief that production and ecology can improve simultaneously with Regenerative management. The process just enabled us to test the waters and learn about the LRF quickly and on-site".

Testimonial: "In the process of developing our farm and livestock business, Tim and Nic have been brilliant sources of knowledge, care and workable solutions to our on-farm challenges. They have made the process of deep diving into regenerative ag far less daunting than it would be without feeling like we have a team on our side. It has been so reassuring to be able to pick up the phone and talk through ideas, challenges and ask important questions. I enjoy Nic's attentive and curated approack to our soil and seed needs. Tim's robust and practical approach to livestock and farming infrastructure requirements is often delivered with a smattering of dry humour that helps make me feel a bit less stupid for seeking the help that I genuinely need, and for that I am very grateful. Can I mention that Amber is the rose between the sharp thorns?" ~ Kelly Titman
Looking to buy a property
We can visit properties within the Mary Valley and wider Gympie Catchment areas and objectively evaluate whether the land and soil type, pastures & weeds, water, infrastructure and access are suitable for your desired land use. Don't get a surprise you didn't count on. You wouldn't buy a house without a "building and pest inspection" so don't take the risk in an area you are unfamiliar with.
Let us do all the leg-work for you, bringing in experts when needed, before presenting you with a customised report showing up to 3 options, the best of which are calculated on a cost/benefit criteria.

How does it work?
Pre-consultation we will send you a questionnaire that is a pre-requisite to undertaking our service. We will ask you a lot of questions that will then ensure that our actual consultation time with you gets down to the important stuff rather than the getting to know you details.
Consultation pricing will be uploaded shortly. In the meantime please CONTACT US via email or phone for more information and to book.
