At Miraboo farm in the Strzelecki Ranges we hand plant, and hand weed our garlic plantation. In the summer, we add tonnes of pig manure, lime and organic compost, delivered in ten tonne truckloads from a neighbour’s farm. All the ‘good gear’ from the floor of the calf rearing shed comes over the hill from Mardan to Mirboo Farm.
We are ‘chemical free’. We do not use pesticides or herbicides of any type. And the mulch from the calf shed is 100% organic. We ‘air dry’ the garlic . . . and reduce the impact of large variations in humidity and heat that we have in the at this time of year.
