How To Move Your Farm Animals
Taranaki Farm shows you how to move a herd of cows, a flock of laying hens, some sheep and a stowaway frog in only 20 minutes… and in the process, heal farmland and local community.
Autumn Rain & Keyline Earthworks
Pairing Keyline Design farm layout to Polyface Farming methods makes Taranaki Farm genuinely unique in the world of sustainable/regenerative agriculture. Now with ten interlinked keyline dams and catchment road, drains and irrigation features, Taranaki Farm continues its investment in keyline design as a strategy for dryland water management which supports direct marketed, salad bar beef, pigerator pork and pastured chicken and egg enterprises.Comments (1)
Courses/Workshops — by Ben Falloon February 16, 2010
We’re very pleased to present the Fusion Farms Compost & Compost Tea Course with Paul Taylor coming up in May 2010 in central Victoria, Australia. It is a practical workshop on how to hydrate, enhance and heal your soils by understanding the soil food web and how to make biologically active Aerated Compost Tea.
As many of you have been following the development of the compost tea and keyline injection rig here on Taranaki Farm, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to attend this very special workshop with both Paul Taylor and Ben Falloon.

This article forms part of a series concerning the development of methods of compost tea application via the keyline plow which are published on taranakifarm.com.
Part IV: Re-Inventing the Herbicide Tank – Giving Destructive Equipment New Purpose
Compost tea brewing requires the use of specialist equipment. Especially when you intend to apply tea to hectares of paddocks. In my case, I’ll be making tea using a 1000L brewer supplied by Trust Nature Pty Ltd. The brewer tank is a little large to mount on the keyline plow, so an ‘application’ tank is required. This is a smaller tank, fitted with a pump and plumbing necessary for application during keyline plowing.Comments (5)
