Michael Stapleton’s Farm is just up the road and being right beside us within the ZER0KM parameters is a perfect example of how we all network here as neighbours in Macreddin. Michael is a sheep farmer and engages in best practice with his flock. Michael, shepherds because this is what he grew up with and this shepherding knowledge was passed down to him from generations before him. As a traditional shepherd, Michael’s flock management sits within the ethos of the ZER0KM Event. But more importantly though, for the ZER0KM Dinner, he has an innate traditional farmer’s knowledge of all his flock and will set aside the best 2 or 3 ewes for the lambing requirements.
