Jason Wheaton

Author, Speaker, Educator, and Sustainable Farmer


Jason is a leading specialist in sustainable farming having managed the family mixed production farm (lamb, wool and cropping) on Kangaroo Island for over 10 years.

Jason works with Australian farmers to assist them in maximising production while at the same time not compromising future production by preventing soil degradation and maintaining plant and animal health. Since completing his Bachelor of Agricultural Science, Jason has held numerous roles in the Agricultural Sector in various areas of Australia, focusing on farm production and sustainability across all manner of climates, farm production systems and sizes in Australia.

As a lecturer at Marcus Oldham College Jason has guided young farm managers to engage in more sustainable farming practices with the aim of increasing production. In the past he organised and conducted specialised tours taking large groups to China and New Zealand looking at their farming practices.

Jason and his family have supported diverse causes including, World Vision, The Royal Flying Doctor Service, Kingscote General Hospital, Marcus Oldham Foundation, and Trees For Life.

Jason is the author of Kangaroo Island, 100 years of farming on a tourism landscape.

Today Jason’s passion for speaking and educating people on soil conservation, Australian farming practices and Kangaroo Island is evident by the hundreds of people he has consulted, worked with and spoken to.

Jason is married to Tammy and is the father of three boys Jack, Tom and Archie.
