EP #10 – Building a sustainable food future one chook at a time! – South Australia special series

In the first of our South Australia special series we chat to Lucy Dodd, a fourth generation farmer who has returned to the family farm on the Limestone Coast of South Australia. Bringing her passion for creating and sustaining regional communities through sustainable agriculture and connecting consumers with farmers, Lucy has taken on the the challenge of creating a new family business brand – Lowan Park Produce – to sell their high quality, pasture raised chickens grown on their farm to butchers, local restaurants and direct to consumers. With a focus on valuing the whole animal, Lucy uses every part of them that she can to minimise food waste. Starting the business hasn’t been without its challenges, but Lucy’s hard work and perseverance has paid off and supplying Melbourne is now on the horizon!
