Sustainable farming

The Kogelberg Biosphere surrounds a farming community that strives to use sustainable agricultural methods, promoting farming practices that enhance the environment and the natural resources within the area.

Many farms have set aside vast areas to allow the growth of biodiversity on their unique microclimates. These biodiversity areas have no alien vegetation, and integrate natural biological cycles and controls, to ensure that the site specific area contributes to a long term relationship between organisms and their environment.

Organic farming is at the very heart of sustainable farming and Biodiversity agriculture complements the organic farms in the Biosphere. Organic farms in the area use no manufactured chemicals and these farms are using traditional methods of farming, such as horses to plough, and cows and sheep to mow instead of using tractors and fuel. Organic farming uses the best practices from the past that enhances the biosphere environment.
