At LoveMerino we are very passionate about improving the
environment for our children and future generations.
Glenwood is not just a farming business but a way of life - we aim to achieve a harmonious balance between the landscape, animals, business and our family.
It could be said that Merino is the only fibre in the world that helps to regenerate the land. Our Merino sheep are managed to mimic nature, grazing in large mobs for short periods of time before moving paddocks, allowing the land to rest and regenerate its native flora as it has done for thousands of years.
Merino is a planet-friendly fibre made from the simple combination of sunlight, water and grass. It is made of up to 50% carbon, stored in a stable form. It is renewable, has the ability to biodegrade without harm to the environment and can be recycled.
Our unique approach to grazing has led to the re-emergence of unique species of native grasses thought to be extinct in this area and allows for the regeneration of the top soil - reducing the impacts of drought.
We monitor the farm’s progress twice a year using indicators such as the percentage of ground cover, type of ground cover, number of native perennials, evidence of organisms and the type of perennials.
