Your project. Your profit.

We have developed a do-it-yourself model that delivers more profits to landowners.

Our Do-It-Yourself Model

We’re breaking new ground with this Do-It-Yourself Carbon Farming Model that puts farmers in the drivers’ seat and cuts out unnecessary third-party costs.

This no-frills approach gives the farmer the freedom to choose their level of involvement in a carbon project. The more work the farmer put in, the more profits they receive.

 

Under the DIY model, we are a remote team that work in the background to make sure the farmer has dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s during their project. We like to think of it as the farmer handles the project side of things, and we handle the red tape side of things.

 

Our services, in a nutshell, will include:

  • Long term technical support and advice for the life of a project.
  • Software that automates the processes and lays a carbon project out into a simple step-by-step process
  • Training, guidebooks, templates and learning resources to set the carbon crops up for success.
  • Connection to trusted funding and trading opportunities, via partners.
  • We also draw upon a network of vetted sub-contractors and delivery partners, who can help on-the-ground

We think landowners should come away with 95-100% of the carbon credits from their carbon crops. As a registered not-for-profit, all profits that come into the organisation go back to helping Australian farmers grow carbon crops.

Our Unique Approach

A farmer-first delivery model.

Giving a fair go 

As a not-for-profit, we don’t pull the wool over your eyes. There are no sneaky legal clauses, lock-in contracts or hidden costs. The more you roll your sleeves up, the more profits you earn.

 

Diversification made easy

We make it cheaper and easier to build carbon into the existing operation. We make sure that your project is following all necessary compliance regulations.

 

Skin in the Game

We go to bat for farmers,  navigating compliance standards and regulations for the long haul of a project. We share the risk of crop failure. When the farmer succeeds, we succeed. 

 

Real results  

Most of our team grew up farming, so we understand how farming businesses are operated. We help find practical solutions to overcome any potential snags during the project. We want to help you generate real yields from a carbon crop.
