Cris and Lee-Anne Geri manage their small farm in Tansey, west of Gympie, Queensland (Rawganix Farm) in a way that reduces their farm inputs and their environmental impact as much as possible. For them this means having a range of different crops and stock, and being mindful about the biological systems on their farm, and how their farm interacts with biological systems outside it.
