Happen Films

Jordan and Antoinette from Happen Films have done an amazing job capturing the essence of holistic management and regenerative farming here at Mangarara, capturing how our animals are essential to sequestering carbon, building soils and restoring our ecosystem, albeit one with humans involved!

Check it out by clicking the image. We would also encourage you to check out some of the other inspiring and informative videos Happen Films have produced!

Country Calendar

Recently Mangarara was showcased on the popular farming program Country Calendar.  It is great to get the feedback from people who believe in what we are doing on farm to restore the land and farm more consciously.
