Biodiversity at Eaglerise Farm

Biodiversity is paramount to the Eaglerise Farm design. It is included in our philosophies and can be seen throughout the farm.

The ecology in agroecology dictates a broad array of biodiversity. Regenerative agriculture is not regenerative without biodiversity enhancing the agricultural productivity. The permanence in permaculture cannot exist without biodiversity supporting the system, and, the organic standards outline a minimum of 5% of the farm be devoted to native ecosystems.

Our farm biodiversity can be outlined in four streams. Wildlife biodiversity – animal and birdlife, paddock biodiversity – soil biology and pasture species; revegetation biodiversity.
