Bee Friendly Farming® has arrived in Australia. The program, an initiative of the Pollinator PartnershipTM in USA, works directly with farmers to promote and certify bee-friendly landscapes and practices.
Bee Friendly Farming is a program that supports farmers, orchardists, and other commercial land-use operations to promote pollinator health on their lands. With generous support from BFF partners, One Tree Planted and Flow Hive, up to $100,000 is being offered as tree grants to support tree plantings on BFF CERTIFIED farms.
Mark Wootton from Jigsaw Farms, north of Hamilton, Victoria, talks about how Bee Friendly Farming® is a very valuable add-on to his family farming operation. Jigsaw Farms is a 3,441ha mixed grazing operation running fine wool lambs, beef and integrated agroforestry and biodiverse permanent revegetation used as a carbon offset program.
