Causing a biotech buzz in insect farming
Hexafly produces a range of sustainable, natural commodities through insect farming. They take in the raw material bioproduct and use insects to upcycle that waste into valuable sustainable products such as organic fertiliser, high protein animal feed, sustainable insect oil and natural chicken feed. They believe insect farming is the most efficient form of farming in the world in terms of the amount of protein produced per square metre and resources needed. There is also a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions compared with other farming methods and it is also the most efficient when it comes to water usage.

Farmers and unemployed Pilots have teamed up for a Win Win this harvest!
Harvest is finally underway and it's looking like a bumper crop coming off after years of drought.  One of the big issues facing Farmers is the lack of workforce.  In previous years backpackers and grey nomads have pitched in to help as well as workers following the harvest from Queensland to NSW.  This year the International and Domestic boarder closures have kept many of these people away.  However an innovative solution has been to employ pilots who already have the skills to operate large machinery and who have been stood down by those same boarder closures.
