    Barham Growers

    Just over the New South Wales border lies a 1820-hectare rice crop and sheep-grazing property, alive with the sounds of frogs and dragonflies. Barham Growers has been in Andrew and David McConnell’s family for over a century, and now they’ve got the reigns. For more than 25 years, the McConnells have been farming sustainably: they turned their back on fertilisers and pesticides and converted their farm to biodynamic practices. Their rice in particular gets very special treatment. Rather than poisoning the pasture, they let sheep graze until the paddocks are bare. They then sow the rice and flood the paddock, later saving the water in their dams for later use. No intervention, just wholesome rice as nature intended.
