Board of Directors

Stuart McAlpine

Position: 
Non-executive Director

Stuart is a Wheatbelt farmer with 35 years’ experience in agriculture who is committed to the environmental and social restoration of his region.

He was co-founder of the Liebe Group and inaugural President. He instigated the Regional Repopulation Plan with the Wheatbelt’s Dalwallinu Shire and Chaired the Regional Repopulation Advisory Committee.

In 1999, Stuart was Western Australian No-Till farmer of the year and in 2015 he received a Soil Health Champion Award.

Stuart believes that successful food production will ultimately only be sustainable with an integrated approach that allows for continued improvement in the health of the ecosystem and can be demonstrated in operating farming systems.

“Over the next decade, I hope we can revitalise many communities across WA. We are real people and we care about our community, our environment and the quality of the food we eat. We have a vision to share that opportunity with as many people as possible.”
