Jason Hagan grew up on the family farm at Tooborac (McIvor Farm is on part of the original Hagan farmland). Growing up Jason had farming in his blood and chose to pursue it professionally upon leaving school. He formally studied Farm Business Management at Marcus Oldham College in Geelong. He has since travelled across Australia working and managing farm operations of varying scales and methodologies, building expertise up across cropping, livestock (sheep and cattle) and outdoor bred piggeries.
Jason’s passion for innovative farming methods has seen him transform traditional farmland into fertile regenerative land. He’s interested in working with and learning alongside the industry’s best and seeks to leave a thriving legacy for the next generation.
As an innovator, Jason always working on the next new development, system or enterprise for the business. You’ll see him at one of the farmer’s markets McIvor Farm attend across Victoria each weekend. While modest upon first meeting, Jason comes alive when talking about the farm, animals and what it means to farm regeneratively.
