Southampton Homestead Small Farm Visit
As part of the 2021 Balingup Small Farm Field Day, join Jeff Pow and Michelle McManus as they walk you through their 120 acre poultry farm on the banks of the Blackwood River.
Growing and harvesting in excess of 6000 birds per year, Michelle and Jeff will share their practice of regenerative agriculture, which includes raising meat chickens out on its biodiverse, perennial pastures, combined with planned grazing of a small Belted Galloway cow herd. If you want to know more about building soil and carbon, and increasing your land’s water holding capacity, this is a must. The couple and their staff also operate one of the only remaining small family abattoirs in the Southwest, reclaiming the terms of trade back onto the farm.
Please note farm visits include walking on steps, uneven ground and around worksites.
