Our history

Our passion for living soil, and the belief that it is fundamental to sustainable agriculture, has only grown over the years; along with the company. Over 15 years ago Soil Matters was founded by Rob Flynn. A diverse background, and being exposed to an array of landscapes and different farming approaches, proved to him that it was best to cooperate with nature as it 'pays off in the long run'. With this in mind, solutions were sought and found for common soil and crop health issues.
Soil Matters has grown from Rob Flynn working on his own, into a team of like-minded, approachable people with real integrity. Today Soil Matters consists of a team of people with broad expertise, allowing us to give multi-dimensional advice across all farming sectors.
