The Neuendorf family have been farming in the fertile Lockyer Valley since 1918 originally dairying and then moving on to lucerne and horticulture. After a family succession David and Bronwyn with their son Brenton started their own lucerne farm and 9Dorf Farms was born.
David realised that farming in today’s financial climate had little rewards and began investigating new ways of diversification working with the environment to heal our land. This opened up new opportunities to provide ethically grown produce marketed direct to the public. David’s first venture was to grow clean and wholesome fish and after 2 years of research including a trip to Israel to investigate the latest technology, a 30 tonne aquaculture recirculation system was built in 2011 on their Lilydale property growing Australian native fish. With the aquaculture operation up and running successfully it was now time to start the next phase of rejuvinating the paddocks using the controlled movement of cattle followed closely behind by poultry. It has been a long hard road battling droughts, floods and disasters however the fruits of their perserverance are now showing.
To have a sustainable and financially viable farming enterprise that will allow us to develop our vision in producing environmentally friendly, stress free, ethical produce by using the latest technology available combined with natures principles. Maximizing food production by bringing high-yield produce direct to the end user, using less resources, less land and saving valuable water.
