Agriculture

70% of the Mornington Peninsula is designated in the planning scheme as Green Wedge and this land supports a rich and varied Agriculture industry with perennial horticulture, annual horticulture, grazing, poultry, cropping and artisan food products all significant contributors to the $1.3B sector.

Farming on the Peninsula is highly diverse with a high number of small-scale growers producing a great diversity of produce. It is recognised that different farming types/systems have different opportunities to achieve regenerative goals. There is a “toolbox” of regenerative practices and regenerative agriculture will not look the same on all farms. By its nature, regenerative agricultural practices are shaped by conditions on farm and the emerging design of the individual agro-ecosystem.
