Brett & Karen Slater
Rainfed rice is grown and milled on the family-owned Slater Farm in Northern Rivers, NSW. Brett Slater, a local bio-dynamic certified farmer with a passion for innovative sustainable farming moved to organic farming practices in 1998 and converted to bio-dynamic growing in 2004. Brett grew his first crop of dryland rice in 2009. He then purchased and set up his own mill on the farm to produce an all-down-the line bio-dynamic grain. In the past Slater Farm has also had great success with rice, soya bean and wheat. They have been supplying to Food Connect since 2011.
