Who is Tony Evans?

Hugo and Tony EvansCamperdown Compost began 13 years ago when Tony Evans and his business partner Nick Routson sought a way to utilise local dairy waste.

They set up a licensed facility to take organic waste streams from a couple of different dairy factories. That material was then initially used for worms and producing worm castings. And it sort of evolved into a compost site where we still use some worms, but predominantly it’s for composting now.

And then they met Elaine Ingham in about 1999 or thereabouts and started to then put together how they could best utilise the waste in an agricultural system.

Today Camperdown Compost is working closely with over 70 dairy farmers going onfarm with their compost turners and converting the waste to valuable organic matter.

I think the price shock of 2008 really brought that message home starkly to a lot of farmers. When the price of oil went up, the price of fertilisers went up and I think the future then became writ large for a lot of producers when they thought, “OK, well if this is what’s going to happen to fertiliser prices in the future, am I going to be able to respond, am I going to be able to maintain profitability in the face of this or is there a better way to farm?”
