We encourage you to invite neighbours, staff, family and friends as everyone is welcome.

Karen smoothy has been on ‘Tipperary’ for 38 years. Karen, her son Billy, a casual indigenous employee and her uncle is part-time caretaker. Six years ago Karen became very passionate about reducing the amount of chemical that was used in everyday operation. Researching and gathering information from friends and colleagues led Karen on an exciting journey of regenerative grazing through RCS. Her focus now is not only about reducing chemical use but increasing ground cover, healthy soil, water quality and of course healthy fertile cattle. With climate change, currently such a major focus we are now recognising how regenerative grazing has the power to help change the world.
