Hi folks, I want to take a brief moment to share with you one of the motivations behind SONIC Natural Farming.

In 2011 I started growing my own food so that I could ensure what I ate had nutrient density without chemicals.  The push for me to do this was due to a chronic illness that could not be pinned to any apparent cause.

After many years of taking supplementary minerals and vitamins it became a bit of a joke.  Why wasn’t I getting these nutrients from my food?  It didn’t take long to join the dots and uncover the huge amount of chemicals and artificial fertilisers that had pervaded our food chain.

Our bodies aren’t designed to digest chemicals.  And any human body struggles to adapt to them.

It amazes me how resilient the human body is, however over time the damage becomes evident and the body starts to show warning signs in the form of ‘dis’ ease.  Depending on our individual makeup the disease will take a form that is (hopefully) relate-able, so that we can understand what our body is trying to tell us, and adjust our ‘inputs’ accordingly.

I applied the same principals I used to recover my body’s health, to the garden.  I figured if everything I put in was natural then I was giving nature the best opportunity to balance and heal.  I stopped trying to work out which minerals were missing and started trusting natures biology to do the work.  Besides, I was giving myself a headache trying to work it all out!

Science has led us to believe, we as the intellectual humans, need to work out and conquer nature.  But that is an impossible task. Even today, science has not even scratched the surface of how the biology in soil actually works.

We don’t really need a science lab or a microscope or a mathematical analysis.  We need to learn to trust.  We need to humble ourselves to the magic and mystery of nature, rather than trying to control it.

SONIC Natural Farming evolved as a business based around the age old methods of fermentation and the principals of natural farming, where all inputs are derived from nature and a mutual respect resides between nature and humans.

Through our training programs we offer the best and most cost effective natural fertilising methods available, and we remind you how to connect with your land in a way that will inevitably enhance every area of your life.

Happy Farming!
