James Alexander's Nuffield scholarship study topic: 'Finding Harmony through regenerating people, place and profit'. The aim of the study was to investigate the world of regenerative agriculture, and to find examples of farmers that have made changes to their behaviour, language, decision making, choice of inputs and practices that have enabled harmony between the people, place and profit in their farming business.
James visited Singapore, Japan, Israel, Denmark, USA, NZ, and travelled across Australia throughout the duration of this scholarship.
With experience as an agronomist and a farm overseer, James and wife Emily currently operate their own business, Long Grass Ag. They mentor farmers in working with natural intelligence farming through a big focus on the people. Additionally, his family runs a composite sheep stud at Cootamundra, with James also part-time managing a cattle farm.
LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!
