Flood Resilience at Forage Farms

Flood Resilience at Forage Farms

It’s been very tough for so many affected by the severe flooding in our local area, as well as Brisbane, northern New South Wales and beyond. Thankfully we are starting to see things bounce back already and the farm is showing impressive resilience, despite the damage to infrastructure, including seven kilometres of fencing.

Our farm is on a flood plain, so we have structured it to cope with inevitable flooding. When we were hit with 850mls of rain over four days, two-thirds of Forage Farms was submerged in about five metres of water. Our priority was to move the cattle up to higher ground to join the chickens and pigs. Having enough feed at the top of the farm to sustain all the animals has been challenging. We were land locked for several days, and the soupy conditions did not make it easy to bring in feed for the pigs and chickens. On top of this, we had no power, phone, or internet – a key learning from this event is we need better backup power sources such as generators, which of course, come at a significant cost.

Despite this, we are impressed with how the higher ground is bouncing back and coping with the increased impact of having more animals grazing. We have enough feed to last another 21 days while the lower ground dries out and fences are repaired. We would also like to give a shout out to our big-hearted delivery driver, Jamie, who has offered to change hats and help with the fencing!

The catastrophic nature of these floods is getting a lot of attention; however, we have been experiencing floods like this for 1000s of years. The degradation of so much of our landscape is not helping. A lack of vegetation to slow the flow of the water means that it moves faster and does a lot more damage. Some of the vertical riverbanks in our region are now eroded to four and five metres deep. All that soil has been taken out into the ocean. It’s simply not sustainable to let that keep happening. We need to build a more resilient landscape to withstand these events.

Our commitment to having a diversity of plant life and the practice of natural sequence farming techniques has created resilience and the ability to recover. Whichever way you look at it, there is a cost – be it a tax to repair landscapes and climate, your health, or the cost of better produced food.

There are so many ways you can start to create change. If you want to know how it may be time to learn more about natural sequence farming.

To the foragefarms.com.au Admin! Eric here with a quick thought about your website foragefarms.com.au…

I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

Like yours, many of them have great content.

But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

Here’s a solution for you…

Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

CLICK HERE https://advanceleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Web Visitors Into Leads now to see exactly how it works.

It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

You could be converting up to 100X more eyeballs into leads today!

To the foragefarms.com.au Administrator. my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

- Someone does a search and winds up at foragefarms.com.au.

- They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

- And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

- Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

- There they go.

This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

But you CAN fix that.

Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

Strong stuff.

Hey, this is Eric and I ran across foragefarms.com.au a few minutes ago.

Looks great… but now what?

By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

Here’s an idea…

How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

You can –

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

CLICK HERE http://boostleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

Pretty sweet – AND effective.
