Farm Planning and Consulting — The Regrarians Platform® has proven itself over many thousands of projects to be the most robust yet flexible and integrated farm planning framework in the world. While at our discretion we may design for you, we recommend that people take up the option to do the REX Online Farm Planning Program by signing up as a Regrarians ‘Planner‘ level member. In this way, we hope to assist you in growing your own skill set as a planner and developing your own farm plan. Taking this option will save you many $1000’s that you can instead direct towards developing and implementing your plans over time.
- Grading and Volumetric Analysis — Having designed, graded and evaluated hundreds of earthworks (dams, channels, roads, terraces, etc), we have developed efficient workflows by which we can help you assess concepts and produce accurate analyses and implementation plans within the constraints of landscape and budget.
- Pipe Network Design — Pipe water reticulation can be an extremely difficult aspect of farm planning to tackle. We can help you design or analyse pipe networks of any complexity with precision and in depth reports.

GENERAL PLANNING PROCESS
Having worked on many thousands of projects across every inhabited continent, Regrarians Ltd. is the world’s leading farm planning company. The Regrarians ‘Works Pattern’ is up to a 17 step process that has been perfected over our 33 years in the Regenerative Agriculture & Living industry (29 years as professional farm planners). We follow this process depending on your critical & self-determined needs. We have a complete set of forms and workflows available for you to fill in and follow if you choose to work with us. Following is a summary of all of the workflow steps.
1. Proposal Before contacting us, please read carefully through our Trading Conditions. and then write to us about your project and desired outcomes.

2. Join the Regrarians Workplace All farm planning liaisons must be members of the Regrarians Workplace in order to contract us for this service. With email being invented in the 1970’s — whilst still useful — it is completely inferior to our highly integrated Regrarians Workplace platform. We have spent over 2 years developing the Regrarians Workplace platform to meet the needs of the community of people we liaise with. As a small team we are always working to be as efficient and effective as possible in serving the widest possible number of people — the Regrarians Workplace is our primary tool to achieve this context and any variations from this only diminishes our core capacity.
