Our farm, called Noondel, is located 200 kilometres north of Perth in the Dandaragan region. The Cook family has farmed this land for more than 100 years. In total Noondel, plus another nearby property called Tekymbah, comprises 7300 acres of land. The entire area is dedicated to producing cattle for Dandaragan Organic Beef.
Both properties were converted to organic in 2000, which means no use of pesticides, artificial fertilisers, hormones or antibiotics. Instead we use organic farming principles, grazing methods that mimic those of wild herding animals, perennial pastures and low stress stock handling methods. We also apply compost and plant hundreds of trees each year.
