SUSTAINABILITY: David Sivyer, pictured here with students of Thereses Primary School New Lambton, is transforming the farm-to-plate sustainable agriculture.

The Sivyer family farm is a patch of land on the Allyn River, which flows to the Paterson, roughly east of Muswellbrook. Around 2013, David Sivyer had just turned 30 and decided to trade his work in hospitality to move back home and help run the farm.
