About Figtrees Organic Farms
The seeds for the formation of FigTrees Organic Farms and current direction were started in 1998 with the arrival of a new manager, Glenn Morris and his family.
FigTrees Organic Farms runs two properties, Wilton Park at Grafton in the Northern Rivers; and Billabong, near Inverell in the Northern Tablelands.
By placing a far greater emphasis on working with natural processes the team at FigTrees Organic Farms has been able to regenerate the properties from tired conventionally run farms to thriving healthy landscapes bursting with abundance, the abundance that comes from caring for healthy soils.
Now FigTrees Organic Farms is proudly able to supply discerning consumers the healthiest and best tasting nutritious beef that comes from healthy well cared for cattle who have lived a happy life on healthy pastures. We are pleased that by choosing to buy Figtrees Organic Farms beef, consumers can contribute to ensuring the continued care of the land.
I started my working career jackerooing in north west NSW and up into QLD on properties working with sheep and cattle on fairly large holdings.
I have always enjoyed working outdoors and with animals.
Eight years ago I met Glenn and started working with Figtrees Organic Farms.
This was when I was first introduced to Holistic management principles and managing animals and the landscape in a chemical free environment.
It has been a real turning point for me and I now have a much deeper understanding of nature, and a commitment to work with it. I get real pleasure in working with animals to enhance the environment around me, and in producing a healthy animal through a healthy living soil.
I am married to Leah and we have 2 girls, Taylor and Matilda who both enjoy growing up with animals as part of their daily lives.
Glenn has a long history of working on Stud and commercial beef cattle properties and has spent his life observing and enhancing the roles natural cycles play in the health of properties.
Glenn is proudly supported by his wife Katrina and his three sons Ben, James and Andrew. Glenn is motivated by ensuring that his farm practises enable the land to be passed on to future generations in a healthy state.
