Stuart is the General Manager of Wilmot Cattle Co, a grassfed beef business based in the New England region of NSW, spanning three properties totalling over 5,600ha. The business is managed in a holistic context, focused on regenerating and restoring the ecological function of the landscape in a profitable way, and producing the healthiest, most nutrient dense, beef.
Stuart spent a vast majority of his early career working in the northern Australian pastoral industry, as well as time in broadacre agriculture in Canada, a feedlot in southern Queensland, and was the founder of an international agriculture recruitment business.
Stuart is most passionate about helping others, and this passion is shared amongst the Wilmot Cattle Co team. He often shares their story online, in print media, on podcasts and has been a keynote speaker on various occasions in Australia and North America. In 2019 Stuart was awarded the national Young Carbon Farmer of the Year Award and the business was recognised as a Champion in the NSW Landcare Awards.
In 2021, Wilmot Cattle Co successfully transacted the world’s first private market soil carbon credit, called the Regen Network CarbonPlus Grasslands Credit, which was sold to Microsoft.
