Tammi Jonas from Jonai Farms - 11 Feb 2017

from 120.00

Our first workshop will highlight Tammi Jonas from Jonai Farms. This workshop will have a strong focus on ethical pork production and running a 'community supported agriculture' business model. 

The Jonai (aka Tammi, Stuart, Oscar, Antigone & Atticus Jonas) tired of choosing between saving the world or savouring it, so they figured out a way to do both.

In May 2011, they left our rather farm-like suburban Melbourne environs behind, took a shortcut across America to glean wisdom from a range of ethical farmers (including lunatic farmer Joel Salatin of Polyface), and landed some months later on Jonai Farms, 69 acres just outside the beautiful town of Daylesford to raise happy, tasty, heritage-breed pastured pigs.

They now have a full herd (12 sows and 2 boars plus 100-120 growers at any one time) of heritage-breed Large Black pigs with 23 acres to themselves. They also run a small herd of cattle on the lush feed produced by our volcanic soils, available as delicious grass-fed beef in our boxes. An eclectic flock of chooks (Isa Browns, Araucanas, Marans, Anconas, and Andalusians) round out the menagerie of critters on the farm.

Come along to hear from this inspirational leader in regenerative agriculture in Australia! 

Workshop runs from 11-3pm at the CERES Community Kitchen, Cnr Roberts & Stewart Sts, Brunswick East, VIC 3057. Max 10 participants.
