Let Merri Bee set you up to grow the healthiest and tastiest produce around, while maximizing your land’s ecological services to the Earth, your financial success and the enjoyment biological farming brings to you, your family, friends and customers!
Merri Bee Organic Farmacy in Nannup has demonstrated that soil can be regenerated and landscape function restored on a property within 3 years. There are less weeds and the grass is greener on the organic side of the fence!
Merri Bee Organic Farmacy’s Stewart Seesink and Bee Winfield have the knowledge, skills and resources to regenerate soils and boost fertility and yields for growers in the south west of W.A.
Regenerative practices Merri Bee uses include cell grazing, swales, multi species cover crops, perennial pasture establishment and quality compost , compost teas and extracts. The compost contains probiotic microbes which act as bio stimulants for plant growth. Symbiosis between grazing animals, plants, and special fungi and bacteria, achieves topsoil creation…… soil being the habitat that microbes actually create for themselves! Soil microbes perform other vital eco services too, eg water holding and the extraction and delivery of minerals from the pebbles, sand, silt and clays of the land, to plants ( in plant available form).
No matter what your dreams for your property, or your current enterprise/s, Merri Bee can advise you correctly due to decades of experience as Permaculture practitioners, teachers, and designers, as well as 16 years in business as organic producers of over 100 different horticulture crops, and raising 10 different species of livestock.
But nothing thrives without living soil, and at Merri Bee Organic Farmacy, we had to grow soil primarily. Now we would like to help you do the same!
