Selby Organics, Rankin Springs NSW
Ron and Andrea Finch introduce their environmentally friendly property “Selby” which is a 3,174 hectare Certified Organic farm, holistically managed in Rankins Springs. They have been farming on “Selby” for 30 years, recently deciding to open their property to interested visitors.
We’ve have been developing our natural farming system since the mid 1990’s and now run a flock of around 1,200 Dorper Breeding Ewes using Holistic Grazing Management to balance livestock health, productive pastures and soil fertility. We also grow cereal grains, produce hay from Lucerne and oats during good seasons to sustain stock health during times of drought. Water supply is from rainfall runoff collected from erosion control contour banks stored in dams. Our farm has vast bushlands and unique wildlife included in the biodiversity which is valued in balance with our farming operations.
