Episode 39: 1200 chickens!

Episode 39: 1200 chickens!

Imagine buying some land in regional Victoria, figuring out how to work with it instead of changing it, and ending up farming over 1000 chickens, maintaining sheep, a jersey cow and growing your own food supply. Not only that, but achieving carbon positivity - drawing more carbon out of the atmosphere than you produce. Our guest Phil Westwood and his wife Jill have done exactly that. We spoke to Phil about how he started, what he has learned along the way, and his thoughts on simplicity over greed.

You can access Phil’s e-book on farming and lots more at: or you can send him an email to find out more.
