Fernleigh Farm in Bullarto, Victoria (in the Macdeon Ranges & Spa Country, in Melbourne Surrounds), are proud to be organic producers of Wessex saddleback pigs and a variety of seasonal vegetables. The philosophy of the owners, Nicholas and Fiona Chambers, is that a healthy soil leads to healthy crops.

Organic farming is much more than farming without chemicals. It begins with caring for the soil and working with nature's systems. At Fernleigh Farm green manure crops are grown to help build the nitrogen level of soil and encourage a range of biological life.

Animals are used as part of the overall rotation to assist in building soil nutrition.
A tractor and moldboard plough incorporate the green manure into the soil in preparation for new crops to be grown.
