How we farm
McIvor Farm Foods is more recently (September 2016) purchased neighbouring blocks to now consist of 240 hectares (close to 600 acres) in Tooborac – on the corner of the Northern Highway & the Lancefield Road.
Some of the land has been owned by Jason’s family for 100 years and is the site of the historical ‘Hagan Family Butcher Shop‘
More about How We Farm…..
Jason & Belinda work closely with Darren Doherty from Regrarians – he assists them with their farm planning & design.
“…The Regrarians team continuously travels the world working on and viewing many of the premiere regenerative agricultural farms across the planet. From what we’ve observed over many years now, McIvor Farm Foods’ Hagan family operation exemplifies the cutting edge of pasture-raised pig production in the world. Their rapid rotations do not remove all ground cover like so many operations around the world and their grassy woodland landscape is regenerating as a result. The production of omnivores is challenging and the Hagan’s are pushing the bar higher with their pasture cropping program to supplement the diet of the pigs in situ. Their whole fencing layout minimises water (and nutrient) runoff, their integrated water and access system increases the efficiency, and their tree planting program will bring a taste of ‘Jamon Iberica’ to these Tooborac hills as the pannage falls over many decades to come. And of course their range of pork products is delicious – and priced to enable anybody access to some of the world’s best produced pork. Plus Belinda and Jason are great people & ambassadors for the integrity food industry…” Darren J. Doherty Regrarians Ltd. Bendigo, VIC, AU
