Are you thinking about integrating forestry and farming?  Using the One Billion Trees fund to regenerate natives?  Have a look at what the Pinckneys have done on their farm The Gates in Waiau.

Thanks to Tony and Angela Blunt and their three strapping lads for hosting a group of farmers at Steepdown on the Inland Road.

The Blunt’s property is a great example of mitigating risk by diversifying income streams: forestry, tourism, honey and of course farming.

Putting regenerating native areas into the ETS is paying dividends; replanting is also helping with stability on EQ-stricken slopes.


The farm summary is attached. Stay tuned for the case study.
