Sustainable Farming Practice
Solar Power is used where possible to pump our natural spring water by harnessing the suns rays & reduce our carbon foot print.
Spring water is pumped from the under ground
aquafer into storage dams for irrigation.
The dams constructed provide an ecosystem for Black Swans,
geese & many other bird life to reside
Lava Valley grows mulch hay on the property ensuring the best quality pesticide free mulch without residual weed seeds - ensuring reduction in spray / chemical usage. This mulch assists in keep microbes & worms heathy & productive in the tree beds.
Our Trees are constantly monitored & analysed to ensure proper tree nutrition and health. This not only reduces the amount of treatments required to maintain a crop but also increases potential to produce a premium quality piece of fruit. This monitoring helps us to have more accurate control over our use of power, water and fertilizers.
