Sustainable farming, is the production of food (in our case – almonds) using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health and animal welfare. This form of agriculture is conscious and enables us to produce food without compromising future generations’ ability to do the same.
Our farms are located in the Riverland region of South Australia, on the iconic Murray River. We have the ideal climate in this region essential for high quality almond production. The Casarosa Australia properties are surrounded by untouched natural bushland and have an abundance of native Australian wildlife including kangaroos, goannas and echidnas.
We are passionate about sustainable farming on our properties and look for ways to improve best practice irrigation efficiencies (to save & monitor water usage) and soil management practices (to reduce soil erosion). We grow cover crops to hold & protect soil from wind and water run off and incorporate organic matter back into fields.
We have recently adopted a dense tree planting technique as this has proven to reduce water and fertiliser per acre and increase yields. These kinds of practices make our business more environmentally sustainable long term.
Casarosa Australia makes the most efficient use of non-renewable resources, on-farm resources and integrates, where appropriate, natural biological cycles and controls. We are focused on environmental & native wildlife preservation, sustaining vibrant communities (by creating jobs for local people) and the protection of public health. Our farms avoid hazardous pesticides, pathogens & toxins, growing Almonds that are safer & tastier!
