Wilmot Cattle Co has an ethos of innovation and a desire to restore the Australian landscape under our stewardship.
We are making a contribution to reversing climate change by taking carbon out of the atmosphere and storing it in our landscapes. We hope that our story will inspire and empower others to make regenerative changes to their businesses, for the benefit of their communities and the landscapes they manage.
Founded in 2008 with the purchase of Wilmot, outside Ebor in northern NSW, the business now spans three properties across the New England region. Woodburn, between Uralla and Walcha, was purchased in 2011 and Morocco, north east of Gunnedah, in 2019. The three properties operate collaboratively with a mix of breeding, trading and 100% natural grass finishing enterprises.
Our vision is to restore the ecological function of our landscapes, profitably.
We believe we can do this using a combination of animal DENSITY and species DIVERSITY. This will create ABUNDANCE and OPPORTUNITY for our business.
A global increase of just 0.4% of soil organic carbon would be enough to offset the amount of carbon humanity emits in a year.*
