Andrew Nichols (Redbank Farming - Linking conservation and farming)

Andrew_and_Joanne_Nichols.jpgRedbanks is a 380 hectare property, in north-west Tasmania operated by the Nichols family for over 20 years. An exemplary enter-prise for profitability and sustainability, almost one-third is natural bush, wetlands and revegetation areas. Most importantly, the Nichols have educated those around them that Landcare values do not conflict with production values by showing very clearly that the two can operate in harmony with great success.
