The plan is to start a self-sufficent organic farm, My main problem at the moment has been in finding useful information on organic farming in Australian conditions. My wish list for the farm is to run cattle (british white (heratige)) as well as have some pigs, chickens, sheep and maybe a goat or two. Finding info on reliable organic feed, or even ideas of which crops to grow for the livestock has got me going in circles, I suppose what I'm asking is what govt bodies should I speak with for organic farming information, books to look at, sites anything. I'm trying to do the costing for the livestock at the moment but the lack of information makes it impossible. Any info any of you guys could point me to would be extreamely helpful. You get the idea that the govt. is all talk about wanting farmers to go organic while at the same time making as hard as possible for people to actully establish the farms! Exasperated.
