We love our farmers for lots of reasons, but it’s the way they care for the land that really makes our heart sing. They practice regenerative farming, which is farming just as nature intended it. This healthy, vibrant soil draws down carbon and grows delicious, nutrient-dense oats to make our oat milk – the only plant-based milk in the world that is carbon-neutral certified and made using WA-grown oats. Our oats have fewer inputs, require less water and produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than other plant-based alternatives, making our milk not only tasty and convenient, but also gentle on mother earth.Wide Open Agriculture PDS
Reducing our carbon footprint and offsetting emissions is important to us. We have measured all the emissions associated with growing, harvesting, transporting and manufacturing from the farm gate to our Perth based warehouse.

We at Dirty Clean Food are reinventing the way the world grows, thinks about, and buys food to create a better future for the planet and the people that live on it. We build and maintain long-lasting relationships with farmers who share our desire to do things differently, to do things better.
We recognise that the measurable, global impact of current food systems currently account for 25 percent of the world’s carbon emissions. Although this statistic is sobering, it represents a clear opportunity to tackle climate change head on. We see regenerative agriculture as critical in this movement to curb climate change and establish positive change.
We are a team of experienced, passionate operators from diverse fields such as finance, social and environmental innovation, branding, farming, environmental science and food systems who are bound by a shared belief – that delicious, healthy food can make the world a better place.
Seed, Grow, Harvest
Our Wheatbelt farmers manage their oats holistically, rotating with other grains such as lupin, wheat and pasture, with the stubble grazed by livestock. This minimises weeds, maximises soil health and produces a strong, healthy crop packed with nutrients.
Prepare the Oats
Local millers dehull, stabilise and roll the oats, unlocking the flavour, fibre and nutrients. We are using Bannister variety oats which grow well in the local climate and the large groats roll out beautifully.
OatUP Production Stage 1
International Foods is a family business in Italy who have 25 years’ experience in plant-based drinks. They mix our oats with water, a little cold-pressed sunflower oil for creaminess and whip-ability, and a pinch of salt for flavour.
OatUP Production Stage 2
The oat milk mix is blended, heated, sieved and chilled, before adding Calcium Carbonate, Riboflavin, Vitamin D and B12 to ensure a balanced dairy milk alternative. It is filled into long life packaging to allow for food safe distribution across Australia and into Asia.
More a fridge staple than a fringe alternative, OatUP is available to enjoy when you are out and about or at home. It is delicious and nutritious - an excellent source of fibre and vitamins, low in fat and cholesterol free.
The Tetrapak Brik we use is made from 75% paperboard with a Bio-based LightCap, making it light weight and easy to transport. Tetrapak are world leaders in the provision of sustainable packaging.
Steve and Kelly Ford are passionate regenerative farmers, based near Williams, in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia.
Farming with Steve's parents, they are proud suppliers of oats for OatUP.
Steve and Kelly began their journey towards regenerative farming around when they started their family. Kelly is passionate about providing the best upbringing for her children, and her reading and research into health and well-being lead them both to question the difference between how they were eating and living their lives in the house compared to on the farm. Why were they using chemicals on the farm when they were trying to reduce chemicals used in the house? How nutrient-dense is the food that they grow? How can they ensure that their farming system is thriving so their boys can inherit a healthy farm and farming lifestyle? Regenerative agriculture became the pathway that provided answers to those questions.
To address these issues, Steve began looking closer into his soil health and accessed a network of like-minded farmers including Col Bowey, the RSC team and Vic No-till Association.
Some of their changes in farming practises are reducing synthetic chemical use, reducing synthetic fertiliser inputs in favour of biological inputs, and eliminating fungicides. This is resulting in healthier soil that is alive with beneficial microbes and fungi. Diverse multi-species cropping, cover cropping and pasture mixes are also providing more cover on the ground.
Steve and Kelly are constantly reading and researching different ways to regenerate their farming system, and we look forward to learning more and watching their farm evolve over the years to come!

Jamie Anderson farms with his parents at Williams in the south western wheatbelt. The Anderson family bought the property as Jamie finished high school, where they leased it out before running their own flock of merino sheep and cropping. Jamie is now a proud supplier of oats for Oatup.
Jamie first came across regenerative agriculture through his friend from the local football team, Steve Ford. Steve, also an oat supplier for Dirty Clean Food, had been leasing part of Jamie's farm and using a disc seeder and biological inputs in their cropping program. Jamie liked how this approach was working on his farm, and has since been working with Col Bowey, a regenerative agronomist, to improve his soil health and focus on transitioning over to a regenerative system.
When Jamie and his family first moved onto the farm, they planted over 40,000 trees along the riparian zones of the farm/riverbanks, to stabilise them and create habitat for local wildlife. 19 years later these trees are now fully established and provide important ecological services for the farm ecosystem.
Jamie has also recently been experimenting with multi species cover crops, putting in over 220 hectares of various multi species cover crops!
He is trialling 40ha of buckwheat and brasil canola as a cover crop, but also as a punt for summer crop to harvest if it finds enough moisture. Buckwheat suppresses weeds and attracts beneficial insects and pollinators with its abundant blossoms. It also reportedly extracts soil phosphorus from soil better than most grain cover crops.
These multi species cover crops will create a healthy soil full of microbes to support next seasons oat crop.
We look forward to seeing how long Jamie can keep their roots growing in the soil and providing food for his soil microbes, and watching his farming system evolve!Buy OatUP Online
