1994/95 Our dear friends Nada & Tony Smark (then of Woodbrook Farm) bought us our first Yeomans Keyline Plow in return for us designing & developing their first vineyard & forest (which was a Keyline vineyard & forest – see picture below!). What is a ‘Regrarians Keyline Superplow’? History Since…

Holstons Savannah Shade Study

The integration of trees into agricultural landscapes is done in many different ways. One layout that has a lot of practical and aesthetic appeal to even the most ardent of graziers is the savannah. Otherwise known as open grassy woodlands, dehesa (see photo below) and montado these systems are seen…

Over the last few years Franck Chevallier (France) has developed a open source (OS) subsoiler which is designed to be able to be built by local metal workers using readily available materials.

The late, great P.A. Yeomans (1904-1984) did the world a great service by developing the #Keyline farm planning system from the 1940’s. With this he provided some excellent and enduring work on the ground on any number of properties across Australia and a few other parts of the world, notably a…
