Regenerative Agriculture and The Responsible Wool Standard
Regenerative agriculture is farming that has both a positive impact on the environment and also succeeds in providing for the people who live and work on the land. It takes a step beyond sustainable farming, and is actively doing good. At Millpost this means we are improving farm biodiversity and ecological health, as well as living and working on the farm. Millpost is Land to Market verified.
Land to Market is the Savory Institute's solution for connecting farmers and graziers practicing Holistic Management and other regenerative farming systems with the public. It helps farmers all over the world to measure the success of their management practice from an environmental perspective. Click the seal above to read more.
Ecological Outcome Verification (EOV) is at the heart of Land to Market accreditation. EOV monitoring is carried out by accredited independent Monitors and Verifiers, using internationally accepted methodology customised for local conditions. We can measure the impact of our management on our country, and with that information we can see how successful our regenerative practices are. EOV measures three main indicators of ecological condition: soil health, biodiversity and ecosystem function. This means monitoring things like biodiversity, groundcover, water infiltration, soil health and organic matter at regular intervals to make sure the ecosystem processes that support landscape function are improving.
We are also certified by the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS). To read about the standard you can click our seal below.
Products certified to the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) contain wool from farms independently certified to animal welfare and land management requirements.
The standard applies to many management practices concerning animal welfare and handling, land management and social welfare. For example, at Millpost, we don't mules, and we employ low stress livestock handling techniques. We are breeding sheep that are naturally resistant to parasites like worms and flies, and are well adapted to our diverse largely native grasslands.
