Welcome to the rolling green hills of Glendalough Farm

Glendalough Farm is located in Ferndale, Victoria, 127km southeast of Melbourne. The 235HA (580 acres) property is nestled in the Strzelecki ranges with rich soils and good annual rainfall. The property is owned by Greenfleet, a not-for-profit carbon offset organization, and we have entered into a partnership with them where our role is to farm beef on one-half of the property in order to see how much carbon we can sequester into the soil whilst the other half is being reforested. 

Together we have designed the farm in a way that the steepest and least accessible parts will be restored to native biodiverse forest with the remaining areas retained as grazing paddocks, demonstrating how these two approaches to climate action can successfully coexist.

Here at Glendalough, we farm beef regeneratively, in a nutshell, that means that we mimic the way herbivores move in the wild across the landscape, always in tightly packed herds, always on the move and never to return until the grass has fully recovered. The benefits of this are numerous including higher amounts of carbon sequestered into the soil, drought-proofing the landscape and of course, providing nutrient-dense beef. Which is what we would like to offer to you. We do not use pesticides or fertilizers on our pastures. Our beef is 100% grass-fed for its whole life and never pumped with hormones. Just as nature intended. 

Although the beef you receive as part of  CSA 2024 will not be from our herd, from 2025 and beyond you will be receiving our nutrient-dense beef.

CSA 2024 will consist of organic lamb and beef from the following farms:

  • Colin Trudgen and Sally Ruljancich - lamb and beef from Dollar, South Gippsland; from 2 certified organic properties 

  • Bronwyn and Burke Brandon - lamb from Bena, from their certified organic property

  • Jenny and Bob Congdon - lamb from Rennie, NSW, from their certified organic property

  • Phil and Leanne Richards - beef from Jumbunna, south Gippsland from their certified organic property
