CLARENCE Valley farmers are invited to a Farm Walk at Wilton Park, Grafton, on Tuesday, December 4, to explore the possibilities of holistic management and organic grazing by seeing it first hand.

Wilton Park is located on the banks of the Clarence River and has been proudly owned by the Clinton family for more than 40 years.

The workshop is organised by SoilCare Inc. Property managers Glenn Morris and Henry Sheehan will showcase this award-winning operation, which is a holistically managed, organically certified beef-grazing property specialising in top-quality milk veal raised from healthy pastures on the Clarence River flood plain.

The primary goal at Wilton Park has been to restore the natural ecosystem processes of the area, including rehabilitation of the soil and several wetlands.

The wetlands and healthy soils act as reservoirs to capture and re-charge the rainfall from frequent Northern Rivers thunderstorms.

Wilton Park produces organic beef marketed under the FigTrees Organic Farms label.

Bookings to the field day are essential and numbers are limited so please respond promptly by phoning Bonnie at Soilcare on 0448 026 230 or emailing info@soilcare.org.
