Growing up on the land, Lachy Ritchie is passionate about supporting the growth of Australian agriculture. Lachy has worked across the industry, from farmland acquisition to guiding carbon neutral certification for a food brand.
A key focus of Lachy’s work is supporting the uptake of farming practices that build soil health, improve the water cycle and enhance biodiversity.
In 2018 Lachy co-founded regenfarming.news, an online news and knowledge hub that has a dedicated global audience of farmers. Over the years, Lachy has co-founded several purpose-driven businesses, each generating financial returns while benefiting the broader environment and community.
In 2020 Lachy teamed up with a businessman, Norman Pater, to establish the Carbon Farming Foundation. The CFF was born from the belief that adjusting the way land is managed is the most important to reduce carbon emissions globally. They recognise that Australia (and the world) can’t get to net-zero emissions without farmers.
