Locals take to arms in central Otago as crawling rabbits destroy land https://barsugliafarms.com/locals-take-to-arms-in-central-otago-as-crawling-rabbits-destroy-land/ Fri, 26 Nov 2021 16:00:00 +0000 https://barsugliafarms.com/locals-take-to-arms-in-central-otago-as-crawling-rabbits-destroy-land/ A rabbit invasion destroyed thousands of vines, chewed up fence posts and rose gardens, and left properties in central Otago clogged up, costing landowners thousands of dollars.

A rabbit invasion destroyed thousands of vines, chewed up fence posts and rose gardens, and left properties in central Otago clogged up, costing landowners thousands of dollars.

The trail of destruction has prompted some to take up arms – though they have never owned a gun before – and shoot them from their lawns.

The local authority says the responsibility for pest control lies with the owners – a position that has infuriated some, who say the responsibility should lie with the council, not them.

Over the past few months, the Otago Regional Council (ORC) has visited over 300 properties in the rabbit-friendly areas of Lake Hayes, Morven Hill, Dalefield, Gibbston Valley and Hawea, and has now sent hundreds of letters to landowners asking them to come. with their own compliance plan to get rid of rabbits.

READ MORE:
* ‘Rabbit plague can only get worse’
* Carrots laid for rabbits before the release of the deadly virus
* Rabbits turning Central Otago recreation area into dangerous minefield
* Regional Council accused of disrupting rabbit control programs

But some locals see this as unfair.

Stoneridge Estate vineyard and wedding venue owner Wayne Gore spent more than $ 5,000 on rabbit management this year alone, and said council had not pulled the trigger on the matter.

“We have about 300 inside the property at the moment, and it is with us that we have rabbit proof fences and that we enter our hunter once every three weeks,” said he declared.

Stoneridge Estate owner Wayne Gore said responsibility for controlling rabbit populations should be placed with the Otago Regional Council.

OLIVIA CALDWELL / Tips

Stoneridge Estate owner Wayne Gore said responsibility for controlling rabbit populations should be placed with the Otago Regional Council.

“We (the people of Lake Hayes and the surrounding area) had a meeting three years ago with the Otago Regional Council and since then I don’t know if they actually killed a rabbit.

“They emailed, visited, and talked about it. My 10 and 12 year olds caught more rabbits than they did.

Pest control, however, is not covered by the tariffs paid to the regional council after the service was withdrawn in 2015, as well as by the rabbit board for pest control.

Rabbit boards were created in the late 1940s to control rabbits and were initially subsidized by the government.

ALDEN WILLIAMS / SHOCKS

In Christchurch, daring rabbits hang out near the Transitional Cathedral as the city’s reconstruction continues. (First published in November 2019.)

The Central Otago Easter Bunny Hunt, a traditional rabbit slaughter, produced 12,000 rabbits this year. Before that, the latter bagged 8,069 rabbits in 2017.

The council urged landowners to take their own steps to reduce the rabbit population, suggesting everything from fencing, poisoning and fumigation to shooting them and even “hand digging and plugging burrows. “.

Andrea Howard, the council’s environmental implementation manager, said if residents did not take any of the suggested actions, they would be subject to the Biosafety Act.

Failure to comply after that would lead the council to intervene to control the rabbit population on private or public land – at the owner’s expense.

“We do not have and do not require any resident to put up rabbit proof fences. For properties considered “high risk”, we are asking people to develop a rabbit management plan to achieve compliance by the end of next winter.

Rabbits gnawed countless posts, dug holes and dug under rabbit-proof fences in the Gibbston Valley.

OLIVIA CALDWELL / Tips

Rabbits gnawed countless posts, dug holes and dug under rabbit-proof fences in the Gibbston Valley.

“We recommend that people coordinate with their neighbors to achieve the most effective and long-lasting rabbit management results.”

Several residents of Morven Hill said Thing the rabbits had invaded their land and they could spot at least 100 of their homes each evening. Some had bought guns to deal with the problem.

“The ORC has really dragged the chain of control measures for a very long time… the problem over our 30 years in the region has probably magnified at least 10 times,” said one resident.

Gibbston Valley commercial hunter Sheldon Lye has hunted the area for over 30 years and said the rabbit population has quintupled in the past decade.

“The populations have exploded. It is simply outrageous, it is a soul destroying exercise. You extinguish your plantations and the rabbits invade them.

Lye showed Thing over 7,000 dead vines on a single Gibbston Valley vineyard, all within a $ 10,000 rabbit-proof fence.

The rabbits had eaten fence posts to the core and were replaced with steel posts.

Lye doubted the council’s ability to handle the problem on its own.

“All ORC does is continue to use the same old solutions.

“They have good intentions, but they don’t know what they are talking about, they are administrators and have no experience in slaughtering rabbits. It’s not a one size fits all, and they don’t understand it.

Commercial hunter Sheldon Lye says the rabbit population in central Otago has quintupled in 10 years.

OLIVIA CALDWELL / Tips

Commercial hunter Sheldon Lye says the rabbit population in central Otago has quintupled in 10 years.

The rabbit calicivirus virus was illegally introduced into New Zealand in 1997, made legal in 1999, and for some time was successful as a method of treating rabbits. But the rabbits developed widespread immunity, and the population has since grown.

Lye said the only solution was to re-establish a collective group of hunters and animal experts similar to the Rabbit Council.

Gore said that even while gassing, fencing and shooting the rabbits, he could barely stay on top of the problem.

“It’s a constant struggle. Needless to say, their poo – in terms of weddings and brides – it’s not great.

“There must be rates being paid to the board in the tens of thousands, and we don’t see any of that on this issue. We prefer to deploy our own rabbit control, spend the money on them.

Rabbit hunter Stephen Dickson says the rabbit problem has exploded in recent years.

George Murahidy / Newsroom

Rabbit hunter Stephen Dickson says the rabbit problem has exploded in recent years.

Stephen Dickson, owner of pest control agency Cromwell Kill That Rabbit, has been a rabbit hunter for 12 years and said the growth has been exponential, with the problem growing from a localized problem to a much more widespread one.

“It’s about your neighbors doing something. They are usually not private owners, public owners are the worst of the lot. Land Information NZ, DOC, district council – they don’t do anything. It’s out of control.

“It can be stopped. It’s a big job, but it takes organization. It would take a year to find the right people with the skills to do the job. It may take two or three years to train these people.

“Somewhere, somehow, people have to organize this thing.”

Stoneridge Estate gardener Michael Allen said rabbits took hold of roses, vines and pots all over the property.

“If you come here at eight in the evening, it’s like having a herd of cattle.”

How are you, Mane Landers? Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and food. I have enough leftovers for the next few days which should help save me some money as I finish my holiday shopping. Now on to today’s links from the world of football!

Orlando City SC celebrates Thanksgiving

Orlando City players Daryl Dike, Tesho Akindele, Silvester van der Water, Joey DeZart, Derek Dodson and Raul Aguilera have all gathered to celebrate Thanksgiving this year. It’s always nice to see the Lions team up off the pitch and I love the father energy that Akindele comes out of with his kid and some of the Orlando kids.

The Orlando City Foundation also hosted its annual donation of turkeys to Exploria Stadium to provide the local community with turkeys and groceries for the holidays.

Portland Wood Ahead of Thanksgiving

In the first MLS game ever played on Thanksgiving, the Portland Timbers hit the road and beat the Colorado Rapids 1-0 to book their ticket for the final of the Western Conference. Portland defenseman Larrys Mabiala found the back of the net in the 90th minute, following a corner kick, to knock the Rapids out of the playoffs. However, the victory came with some costs for the Timbers, as Sebastian Blanco left the match due to injury in the first half and Dairon Asprilla received a red card in stoppage time. The Timbers will face the winner of Sunday’s match between Kansas City Sports and Real salt lake. Sunday’s action will also include an Eastern Conference showdown between the Philadelphia Union and Nashville SC, while the New England Revolutionthe playoff campaign will not start until Tuesday against New York City FC.

USWNT Play against Australia tonight

In the first of two friendlies, the United States Women’s National Team will face Australia late tonight at 11pm in Sydney. The two teams met twice earlier this year at the Tokyo Olympics, playing a scoreless draw in the group stage before the USWNT beat Australia 4-3 to win the bronze medal. The USWNT’s roster for this pair of friendlies in Australia includes just 10 players from that Olympic squad, with Vlatko Andonovski opting for a younger squad. While no Orlando Pride player is in action for the USWNT, midfielder Emily van Egmond is expected to play for the Matildas. Van Egmond and other notable actors, such as Sam Kerr and Caitlin Foord, should test a USWNT defense who have not conceded a friendly goal against Paraguay and South Korea since the Olympics. The two will play again Tuesday at 4 a.m. in the final game of 2021 for the USWNT.

Ralf Rangnick would have defined the join Manchester United

Manchester United would appoint Lokomotiv Moscow football and development director Ralf Rangnick as his interim manager for the next six months while the club continues its search for a permanent manager. The 63-year-old has decades of experience managing German clubs such as RB Leipzig, Hoffenheim and Hanover. Rangnick would also be a consultant for United for two years after the six-month contract at the helm. Michael Carrick will still be at the helm for United’s English Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

Europa League action intensifies

West Ham traveled to Austria and clinches his place in the round of 16 of the Europa League after a 2-0 victory over Rapid Vienna. Member of the EPL club Leicester City also won a victory after a 3-1 result against Legia Warsaw. Leicester now sit at the top of their squad ahead of their game against Napoli, who lost 2-1 to Spartak Moscow FC. There were a number of Americans in action as Timothy Chandler secured an assist for Eintracht Frankfurt in a 2-2 draw with Sam Vines and Royal Antwerp. Deandre Yedlin and Galatasaray won 4-2 to eliminate Konrad de la Fuente and Marseille. Cameron Carter-Vickers’ Celtic lost 3-2 to Bayer Leverkusen and will return to the Europa League preliminary stage.

In the Europa League Conference, Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-1 to Slovenian club NS Mura. After a red card reduced Tottenham to 10 men in the first half, Harry Kane equalized but Mura found a winner in stoppage time. During this time, AS Rome sailed to a important 4-0 victory against FC Zorya Luhansk as Tammy Abraham completed her brace in style.

Free kicks
  • Pride midfielder Gunnhildur “Gunny” Jonsdottir started in Iceland’s impressive 2-0 win on Japan as a friendly.
  • MLSsoccer.com‘s Sam Jones had a light interpretation what each MLS club would bring to Thanksgiving. It has been determined that Orlando City will bring a Publix sub, but be sure to check out the full article as there are some friendly jabs against rivals Orlando and other MLS teams.
  • The United States Men’s National Team World Cup qualifier against Canada on January 30 will be played in Hamilton, Ontario.
  • Christian Pulisic, Sergino Dest and Weston McKennie are just a few of the Americans to watch during this weekend’s action across Europe.
  • The temporary rule that allows teams to use five substitutions in a match is should become permanent at the annual meeting of the International Football Association Board in March.

That’s all for today. I wish you good luck with your Black Friday shopping, but don’t forget your favorite convenience stores and this weekend. Have a good Friday and stay your weekend!

At the heart of a unique terroir https://barsugliafarms.com/at-the-heart-of-a-unique-terroir/ Sat, 20 Nov 2021 17:46:38 +0000 https://barsugliafarms.com/at-the-heart-of-a-unique-terroir/

The Tedeschi family has its roots in local traditions, but they soon realize that the future depends on science and a deep understanding of the nature of Valpolicella.

For romantics, beautiful Verona evokes Juliet’s Balcony and Verdi’s opera performed outdoors in the old amphitheater. For wine lovers, Verona finds an even greater resonance with Valpolicella, Amarone, Ribaso and other liquid dishes coming to life in the “Valley of the Many Cellars”.

The vast region of Valpolicella is made up of a series of valleys that originate in the pre-Alpine Alps north of Verona and trace their course to the plains to the south. The valleys of Foman, Marano and Negrar, which make up the region of Valpolicella Classico, are the historic core of the Veronese vineyard. There, in the small village of Pedemonte, the Tedeschi family has been making wine since 1630. Almost four centuries of development, it is a unique terroir, where the vines climb hillsides, sometimes free, sometimes surrounded by terraces. Dry stone, which creates a breathtaking atmosphere.

Rooted in regional traditions, the Tedeschi family has long recognized that the future depends on science and a deep understanding of the nature of Valpolicella. Thus, Riccardo Tedeschi launched an ambitious study of the soil through the characteristics of the different beds. Armed with the results of this research, they set out to strengthen the vineyard’s natural defenses, through healthy, sustainable and environmentally friendly agricultural practices.

Tedeschi’s wine selection is impeccable at all levels. Between the sweet and easy-to-drink Valpolicella that you drink with cold meats, to the large plots of Amarone, including the popular Ribaso, spacious, comfortable and generous, how not to fall in love?

Germans Marni 180, Amarón della Valpolicella 2018

A pioneer in the development of a piece of Amarone wine, Tedeschi signs here a wine of unique richness, made from grapes left to dry for four months before fermentation. 2018 reveals aromas of blackcurrant, rum and mint on the palate. The palate is intense and warm, while remaining elegant and fresh. Remove the pitcher and serve with the osso buco and herb polenta.

$ 42.75 – Code SAQ 522763

German capital San Rocco Ribaso Valpolicella Super Duc 2018

The grapes that make up Capitel San Rocco come from the property of Maternigo, in the eastern part of Valpolicella. The Ribaso method, which consists of a second fermentation on Amarone Lee, infuses the wine with nuances of cherry and peach, with touches of black tea, orange peel and spices. Drink it over the next five years, with pappardelle ragi. Excellent value.

  • Ecuador’s Constitutional Court held a hearing in Cofan de Sinangoe indigenous territory, in the northern Amazon rainforest, on November 15, the first time the country’s highest court has agreed to visit indigenous territory for an audience.
  • The hearing is a step in a review of the country’s process for free, prior and informed consultation, and to what extent this process in action respects the rights set out in the Constitution.
  • To analyze this process, the Constitutional Court selected two previous indigenous lawsuits, including Sinangoe’s successful 2018 lawsuit against the government for selling mining concessions in their territory without first consulting the community.
  • More than 300 indigenous leaders have arrived in Sinangoe for the audience, coming from all over the Amazon and other parts of Ecuador to support the consultation review process, which will also have an impact on territorial struggles in across the country.

Early in the morning of November 15, five Constitutional Court judges arrived by canoe to the Cofan indigenous community of Sinangoe, in the Amazon rainforest of northern Ecuador, wearing rubber boots and loose clothing to withstand the storm. intense heat of the jungle. The visit marked the first time in the country’s history that judges from the highest court held a hearing in indigenous territory, with the aim of making the justice system more accessible to those who cannot normally make it to the courtrooms. audience of cities.

“I’m very excited because it’s something historic, I’ve never heard of it [judges] attend a hearing in a community, ”Alexandra Narvaez, a resident of Sinangoe and president of the Shamecco women’s association, told Mongabay before the hearing began.

In previous hearings and other proceedings in the city, “only 10 people go, the whole community cannot go. So this audience, we’re all going to talk, ”she said. “Our opinion is important.

The hearing itself was part of the tribunal’s process to examine Ecuador’s Free, Prior, and Informed Consultation Process, or FPIC, using Sinangoe’s 2018 trial as a basis for analysis, when the community sued. the government for selling mining claims on their land without consulting the community first, and won.

According to Ecuador’s constitution, indigenous and tribal communities are entitled to the FPIC process before any extractive or infrastructure activity is planned on or near their lands. In examining Sinangoe’s case, the Constitutional Court will assess whether the consultation process, as it operates today, respects these rights. If the court decides not, it could set new standards for consultation, which could grant indigenous communities greater autonomy over their own lands.

“It is not only good for us, but also for other communities and can guide them to defend their territory, to defend the decision they take,” said Nixon Andy, former coordinator of Cofan. Guardian, or a vigilante group, adding that “if indigenous communities say ‘no mining’, it means there is no mining.

Over 300 Indigenous leaders traveled to Sinangoe to show their support for the hearing review and consultation process, and quickly filled the normally calm and peaceful community. People have traveled from all over the Amazon and other parts of the country where territorial disputes are rife with mining, oil and other infrastructure projects.

Oswaldo Nenquimo, indigenous Waorani leader from Pastaza province, explains that their group traveled two days to attend the hearing: one day by canoe to reach the town of Puyo, further south, in the jungle, and another day. by bus. The Waorani community won their own landmark case against the government in 2019 in a consultative process to sell their land for oil, which the community called fraudulent, and the judges accepted .

“We have come almost two days to be a part of this, showcase our strength and wisdom and support this process of Sinangoe struggle, and tie our thoughts to this audience,” Nenquimo told Mongabay. The Constitutional Court has also retained the Waorani case as part of its review, but has not yet set a date for the hearing.

For the community and their visitors, the day started at 4 a.m., not with a coffee, but rather with a traditional Cofan drink called yoko, derived from the bark of a special vine of the same name that is only found in the Amazon. Mixed with water, it provides a burst of energy. It is part of the daily routine of the Guardia de Cofan.

When the five judges arrived around 9 a.m., they were greeted by the community with a traditional Kichwa fire ceremony and clean-up by a Cofan. taita, or spiritual healer, to eliminate bad energies.

The hearing lasted nearly four hours, during which the six of the nine Constitutional Court judges (five of whom were present and a sixth who appeared via Zoom) heard testimony from 10 people from the Cofan community, as well as the other departments involved in the initial trial. The Ministry of Energy and Non-Renewable Natural Resources were the only ones with representatives also present in the community, while the Ministry of Environment, Water and Ecological Transition, the Ministry of Energy and Non-Renewable Natural Resources and the Attorney General’s Office also listened via Zoom.

The judges then heard testimony from other communities about their own territorial disputes, resulting, they say, from a failed FPIC process.

Representatives from the Department of Energy and Non-Renewable Natural Resources declined to comment directly on Mongabay on the process. But during the hearing, one of their lawyers, Eduardo Andrés Chang Dávila, told judges that the Constitutional Court must also protect the rights of the state to manage its strategic sectors, such as oil and mining. , which is also described in the constitution, qualifying these sectors as “fundamental pillar of the country’s development”.

The two oil and mining together represent more than 8% of Ecuador’s GDP. Earlier this year, President Guillermo Lasso called for the rapid expansion of both sectors (like Decrees 95 and 151), to deal with the country’s economic hardships which have seen unemployment and poverty rise during the pandemic.

Lina Maria Espinosa, senior lawyer at Amazon Frontlines, the environmental NGO that has supported the Sinangoe community in their legal process, said the acceleration of these industries “clearly puts pressure on indigenous territories.”

She described the ongoing hearing with the Constitutional Court as a “historic opportunity” for the court to listen to communities and properly interpret their rights.

“The challenge for the court is to make this qualitative leap from consultation to consent,” she told Mongabay, calling the current FPIC process an empty formality. “The only way to protect and guarantee the lives of peoples and their territories is with consent. “

The Constitutional Court will now consider the evidence, but it is unclear when a ruling can be expected.

Vowels Lane also includes a fully equipped cellar, a traditional barn for visitors and events, a Grade II listed five bedroom farmhouse, a two bedroom vacation home, pasture and forest.

The well-placed Commercial Vineyard is located in the heart of Sussex Weald, between the historic Bluebell Railway and the Weir Wood Reservoir.

It is available as a whole or in two bundles through Savills.

About 60 hectares of vines have been planted, with grape varieties such as pinot meunier, pinot noir, chardonnay, bacchus, pinot blanc and regent.

The vineyards have been established to produce over 100,000 bottles of still and sparkling wines per year. There is also a two acre apple orchard which sits to the east of the farm with the fruit used to produce the original Cyder method. The cellar contains all the latest technology to produce top quality sparkling and still wine, using stainless steel and temperature control.

All stages of wine production from the vineyard to the boutique can be carried out on site The beautifully restored barn, meanwhile, dates from the 15th century and occupies a dominant position with a courtyard to the front and a garden to the back with a view over the vineyard and towards the Bluebell Railway. Inside, the barn is open plan and full of character, with a wealth of original woods exposed and offers potential for a variety of uses.

The ground floor houses an impressive kitchen and bar, with a utility room beyond.

At one end, a mezzanine gallery overlooks the main entertainment space, which was used as a smaller meeting space and as a stage for the group at receptions. In the yard is a substantial barn (approximately 7,750 square feet), which has already been used for liveries and storage.

The stables have been phased out, opening up opportunities for a variety of alternative uses. There remains a product store, an office and a bonded area. The estate also benefits from a newly constructed Shufflebottom farm building which spans approximately 4,000 square feet and serves as a machine store and workshop. The remaining land is approximately 80 acres and is primarily pasture with approximately 22 acres of timber.

A hard track leads to the top of the farm and from there one has stunning views over Weir Wood Reservoir and the countryside beyond to Ashdown Forest. There are two scenic and popular fishing lakes on the estate spanning approximately 2.7 acres.

The lakes are well supplied with carp, perch, bream and rudd. The Grade II listed farmhouse sits in a commanding position with views over the vineyard and the beautiful countryside beyond. It has five receptions, a kitchen / dining room, a veranda, a cellar, five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dressing room. Around the farm are gardens with herbaceous borders, mature trees and a patio to the front of the property, which enjoys views over the gently rolling pastures and attractive vineyards of the estate.

Adjacent to the farm is a three bay garage, with a fuel store and a large attic above.

“You only have one chance to buy land. “

Greg Bohlen heard these words several times while growing up on a farm in Illinois. It was less advice than recognition of the value of land and the fact that the more you own, the more likely you are to benefit from it.

Decades later, Bohlen, who is CEO of Union Grove Farm in Chapel Hill, continues to apply those words to his business plan. His farm recently announced the acquisition of 279 acres from Maple View Farm, bringing the total area under Union Grove Farm to nearly 900.

In early September, Maple View Farm announced that after 25 years it was stopping milk production.

Union Grove Farm will partner with the owners of Maple View Ice Cream and Country Store, which will continue to supply its local ice cream and farm products. In a blog post on Union Grove Farm’s website, the company said it was “committed to retaining the surrounding land acquired for farming in order to maintain and enhance the spectacular sunset views. sunshine from the popular front porch of the country store ‘.

In 2001, Bohlen bought 10 acres of farmland in Chapel Hill. Union Grove Farm was formed and fruit trees were planted with a plan to operate as a pick-your-own produce business. For the first three years, Bohlen and his farm struggled with almost 100% mortality until they got better rootstocks. But it was clear that the orchard was a losing battle.

“It quickly occurred to me that the soil types and structures were not suitable for planting fruit and that everything that existed here was there primarily to kill fruit trees,” Bohlen said. “So, I have largely given up on this effort.”

Bohlen then devoted his time to investigating the truffles, even making a deal with an operator in California to build a truffle farm at Union Grove Farm. Unfortunately, the funding for this business collapsed.

“I started looking for other things,” he said. “A friend of mine sent me a fine-skinned, seedless Muscadine grape, which is mostly sold by catalog. I ordered 500 vines which sounds like a lot, but overall it’s only about two acres.

Even though the business plan had undergone some adjustments, one thing that had not changed was to act on this opportunity to purchase land. Union Grove Farm continued to grow through acquisitions. By 2016, the farm had grown to hundreds of acres.

(Union Grove Farm also has a wedding and event venue, and a French-style farmhouse that can be rented.)

The 500 vines planted were doing well, but Bohlen had questions about the details of growing the grapes. He contacted the company he bought the vines from to ask if he could speak with the company’s horticulturalist. It turns out the company horticulturalist was a man named Jeff Bloodworth and lived in Hillsborough.

“I called Jeff Bloodworth and asked him to come out and see what I was doing,” Bohlen said. “He did it and told me the thousands of things I was doing wrong. So I said, ‘Well, if that’s the case, then you know I have to spend a lot more time with you, because I think I would like to do more.’ “

Initially, Bohlen believed Union Grove Farm would grow a standard table grape, not wine grapes. He hired Martin Crompton to help with the vineyard. Crompton disliked using chemicals and fertilizers that farming often involves. The two began to explore if there was a way to grow grapes in a truly environmentally friendly and healthy way, not only for the people who eat grapes, but also for the people who grow them.

Bohlen’s pursuit of an environmentally friendly method of growing grapes should come as no surprise. He was on the board of Beyond Meat, a Los Angeles-based vegan and vegan meat maker that the company says is healthier and better for the environment.

He was invited to speak on behalf of Beyond Meat at a regenerative conference in San Francisco. It was an eye-opening experience. “I had never even heard of the word regenerative when I was asked to speak at the conference,” Bohlen said. Agriculture was just one of the things they had on the conference list for regenerative practices. I was probably the Luddite at the conference, because A.) I didn’t understand regeneration; and B.) I had no desire to be regenerative in any way. But then I spent a few days listening and realized that what they were saying made a lot of sense.

Essentially, regenerative agriculture allows you to sustainably grow – without herbicides or insecticides – a healthy crop with little or no trace of any of the chemicals commonly used in agriculture.

Bohlen, at first, was unsure whether the regenerative cultivation method could be applied to grapes. But the more he learned about the process, the more it made sense to him.

“Maybe there was something that could be done to dramatically change the quality of what we were doing and the eco-friendly way of doing what needed to be done to build a big farm,” Bohlen said. .

Meanwhile, Bohlen was working with Bloodworth, who used Union Grove Farm to test their grape varieties. For a few years, Bloodworth planted 1,500 varieties of new grapes to try to cross everything and improve everything.

“It all sort of happened at the same time,” Bohlen said. “And that’s why we decided to become a regenerative muscadine farm. “

The quest to build a better grape had begun. Muscadine grapes are known to be high in antioxidants and other health benefits. There is even a study underway at Wake Forest Baptist Health on the effects of antioxidants found in muscadines on various human cancers.

Aside from the health benefits and sweetness, most muscadines have two characteristics that keep them from becoming a more popular table grape: thick skin and seeds. Union Grove Farm was determined to create a seedless, thin-skinned muscadine that could be mass-produced using the regenerative farming method.

Bohlen felt his team were up to the task. In addition to collecting a lot of land, Union Grove Farm has concocted an impressive amount of brains. The staff include Bloodworth, who is a grape breeder and grower; Martin Compton, regenerative winegrower; Todd Harrington, Soil Food Web Biologist; Dane Jensen, shepherd and regenerative farmer; Dr Laura Kavanaugh, of Duke University, specializing in genomics; and Meredith Sabye, who is a communications shepherd.

“Through a lot of dogged effort we were able to get that same Thompson Seedless (grape) gene into muscadine,” Bloodworth said in a video on the farm’s website. “We can almost breed them normally. We can almost create anything we want.

This was the breakthrough for Union Grove in growing table grapes that customers would want to eat. Union Grove Farm’s initial harvest of grapes is sold in stores, including the Weaver Street Market. Ultimately, the plan is to produce millions of pounds of table grapes and get them to market.

“We’re on our way to becoming the largest winery east of the Mississippi,” Bohlen said. “It’s not a small business, and it’s not cheap. We take great care in ensuring that everything we do is also done with the ability to generate a profit. I would be lying if I said we are doing this just because we are selfless. There is a substantial profit motive that determines what we do and how we do it. As with any other border opportunity, there is a substantial risk and therefore the key metrics we always use when building businesses are that with each successive round of capital that we invest in the business there must be a reduction. of the risk associated with that capital, and the same is true of everything we do here on the farm.

It’s a lot of time, money, effort, and land put into a log-sized fruit, but Bohlen and his team at Union Grove Farm think it’s worth it and are determined to make it happen. in his quest through regenerative farming methods.
