Arundel primarily farms sheep; Cormo sheep for wool and cross-bred ewes for prime lamb production. In addition, the farm has a small herd of black Angus cattle, and Australia’s largest flock of heritage breed English Leicester sheep.
In 2022 Arundel celebrates 33 years of shelterbelt plantings, for stock shelter and biodiversity. Rotational grazing techniques are used to manage pastures and animal health. Multi-species forage crops and perennial pastures are used to maximise plant and soil biodiversity, and to provide plentiful nutrition to stock. Biological (or regenerative) farming techniques and gradually replacing traditional farming practices.
