what exactly is organic?

organic is natural food grown and processed without any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. nothing unnatural is allowed; so there are no growth hormones, antibiotics, preservatives, dyes, chemical coatings or irradiation. there is no genetic engineering allowed in organic foods either so eating organic simply makes good sense

sustainable farming, sustainable living

buying organic produce supports local farmers and producers who believe in good health, quality foods and earth-friendly sustainable agricultural practices. and that’s good for everyone, from the farm worker to the planet to your family – and future generations too!

reduce, reuse, recycle

treading lightly on the planet is what we’re all about. we re-use and recycle all our packaging and keep our food miles down by collecting directly from our farmers and delivering to you on fixed days. we keep waste down by sending you minimum packaging, by collecting it for reuse, and by using reusable crates from our farmers.

eat healthy, live healthy

organic food tastes better and because it tastes great you’ll find that you’ll want to cook more, eat more veggies and feel more of a connection with where your food comes from. it really is a great way to live!

know your certification

certified organic means that produce and the farming process has been inspected over a 3 year period by an independent, specialist certification agency to verify organic authenticity.

during the 3 year organic certification process, producers may say their products are “organic in conversion”

organically grown means the produce and farming process are based on the organic principles of agriculture, however organic certification hasn’t yet been applied for

our organic veggies are sourced from either organically certified or organically grown farmers in kzn and gauteng. since our standards are as high as your’s when it comes to organic food, we’re doing our best to keep all our produce fresh, local and fairly traded

principles of organic agriculture

the principle of health
the principle of ecology
the principle of fairness
the principle of care

agriculture is our most basic activity (we all need to eat!)our history, culture and community values are deeply embedded in agriculture. the principles above apply to agriculture in the broadest sense, including the way people tend soils, water, plants and animals in order to produce, prepare and distribute food and other goods. they concern the way people interact with living landscapes, relate to one another and shape the legacy of future generations
