Free Range Farming at ‘Bellevue’


Sam and Prue Pincott wanted a more natural way to improve the land on their property ‘Bellevue’, near Holbrook, NSW. They wanted to encourage as many grasses as possible, without using bulk fertilisers. So they use chickens help to improve the soil health and the groundcover. They also have large patches of bushland on their property to improve native biodiversity.
