A big warm welcome to Erik Douglas as our newest farming collaborator and contributor to Future Feeders.
Great to have him on board as a co-farmer at the Future Feeders market garden, in developing our growing CSA model and in the continued evolution of the Future Feeders Movement.
As a new young farmer to the region Erik already comes with rich market gardening experience through his ventures at the Fresh As farm and now with his enterprises at The Farm Byron Bay.
Erik is also looking for the next place to put down roots and extend his farming opportunities.

Tell us a bit about yourself
My partner and I migrated to the northern rivers in July last year, accidentally falling into farming as a means of providing both an income and accommodation. Both of which are in drastically short supply in the region.
What is it about Farming?
After ups, downs and round abouts and the hardest year of my life, there is still nothing I would rather do.
Why Future Feeders?
Partnering with Future Feeders is the next stage in collaborative and co-operative working, Agriculture of the people, by the people, for the people.
