Peter Andrews is a grazier and race horse breeder from rural New South Wales who has developed Natural Sequence Farming.

He has applied these insights in restoring his and other properties to fertility levels that he says existed upon European arrival in this country.

Peter’s restoration of Tarwyn Park has been well documented on Landline and Australian Story, and Peter has gained national and international interest and acclaim from his insight and experience.
