Nanima Farm Lamb: About Us

Family Farm Lamb

The Woods family own and operate a 1200 acre farm called "Mount Nanima" in Wellington, located 100km from Orange and 50km from Dubbo in central western NSW.

"Mount Nanima" is located on the beautiful Macquarie River.

With the onset of the drought since 2002, the family has had to radically assess the viability of sustainable agriculture. This has been the catalyst for significant change in the way we operate our farm and the emergence of "Nanima Farm Lamb".

Grass Fed and Saltbush Grazed Lamb

Our pasture-raised lambs are stress free and have access to a smorgasbord of palatable grasses and shrubs.

Old man saltbush is an Australian native shrub and is a pivotal part of our farming system. It is drought tolerant and provides a high protein source for our lambs particularly during the summer months. It also enhances the unique flavour of our lamb.

We do not use antibiotics, hormones or artificial fertilisers.

Grass fed foods have higher levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin E, Beta-carotene and Vitamin A, which all improve human health.

Holistic Management

2011 UPDATE: Tim has been named "Carbon Farmer of the Year" for the central west catchment (see story link on our news page).

Tim recently connected a 10kw solar electrical system - large enough to generate sufficent solar energy to offset on average our entire farm's needs (see photo on our news page).

Tim was awarded the primary producer "Champion of the Catchment" in the 2009 Land Care awards.

Our farm is operated using sustainable conservation farming practices. We have created significant wildlife corridors, which include the Macquarie River, to improve the environment in which we live.

Our farming system is socially sound. We support our community by sourcing all our farm inputs locally, including the Butchers. We are keen to bridge the city country gap by providing an opportunity for people to meet the farmer who produces the food they eat.
