Natural Farming is about letting nature do the work of being nature.

Natural farming incorporates permaculture practices, organic growing principles, sustainable living and regenerative goals. 

Natural farming

Natural farming is about working with nature to produce quality, sustainable foods. And the goal of natural farming is to allow sustainability to become ‘regeneration’ through uninterrupted biodiversity and ecosystems. We then see that productive growth has a whole life of its own and needs minimal interventions.                                    
Natural farming is entirely opposite to contemporary farming practices. Instead of forcing efficiencies and artificially manipulating the processes of nature, natural farming uses endemic cultures, indigenous microbes, and local growing patterns and works with what it has.

Bringing in products, seeds, soil, additives, and enhancers from ‘outside’ the local zone is an expensive, often futile and counter-productive approach. And using pesticides and herbicides destroys the ecologies that make a garden farm sing, thrive, taste, and naturally supply good foods in abundance.

Our natural farming approach

Natural farming establishes permanence. Perennials that continue to generate long-term rather than annuals that crop and disappear. This is the original idea behind permaculture - (permanent culture) which then developed as a philosophy of living harmoniously with nature and is an essential aspect of natural farming.

Permaculture considers the lay of the land and, in the design phase, takes the approach of observing what is there and working with what exists rather than artificially reconstructing. We may put some infrastructures in place to encourage or limit where water flows, capture and utilise gravity, capitalise on landfall grades, make ponds where water already flows, retain sections (swales) and harness. These careful practices are carried out in relation to what exists naturally already.

The design and principles of permaculture are the basis of the whole build and all the processes at 5EyesFarm to establish resilience, sustainability and self-propagating regeneration. The final obvious result is the establishment of forest gardens - food forests that self-sustainably regenerate naturally.



Sponsoring a tree creates greater bio diversity and more habitats for animals and insects to spin the web of life.

Reduce your footprint

Your tree will help to off-set your carbon footprint and reduce green house gasses in the atmosphere. 

Support small-holders

By sponsoring a tree you are enabling small hold farmers to convert to forest gardens creating many benefits.

Forest Gardens

Converting farms to forest gardens  strengthens food security, enhances productivity, restores & rehabilitates land.

A forest garden

A forest garden is an efficient way to grow food and a potential food security solution.

As such, a forest garden incorporates seven or more layers of a productive food forest (seven levels of edible garden).  This forest garden (or food forest) is said to be the most sustainable way to grow an organic farm or garden.

A food forest is diverse. The plants interact and support each other, effectively becoming a superorganism (like a beehive). What falls stays and there is little maintenance once it is established. Have a look at some inspiring stories on food forests here
