Making the journey to a new farming system can be daunting, a bit of trip into the unknown.
We can support your journey to regenerative agriculture. We can help you to identify best practice for your farm & roadtest these new systems in the field.
We can provide advice and support on:
- Improving & assessing soil health
- Planned & mob grazing
- Reseeds & pasture rejuvenation
- Agroforestry & on-farm trees
- Composting & manure management
- Infrastructure & equipment
- Monitoring & setting up on-farm trials
- Mineral balancing & soil amendments
- Foliar nutrient programmes
- Mineral supplementation
This includes soil and pasture health assessments which can be done through the Soilmentor app.
We will train you to use this tool, either one-to-one or through our online training courses that run regularly through the year (see Courses page).

Example Coaching Format
We were keen to make sure we had the data before we started and Niels has been key in helping us choose the right software, input our farm correctly and select the right tools to take the ongoing measurements required.
I would highly recommend him for anyone choosing to go down this route.
