Now it's easier than ever to buy our Certified Organic garlic.  If you are tired of the white, bleached, dry, imported garlic found in Australian supermarkets you can now purchase our beautiful, sweet, lovely-smelling, and intensely flavoured garlic. You'll taste the difference - ours is home-grown, dense and fresh.
As garlic is naturally a slow growing annual crop, it is only genuinely fresh once a year. The cloves are planted out in Autumn - they finally multiply to a new bulb for harvest in November. The garlic is then dried in the air to remove excess moisture and form its dry outer protective skin.
If the garlic is kept dry and reasonably well ventilated, this once a year crop will keep for many months.
Available in 1kg, 500 gm, 250 gm and 500 gm plaits.  Whilst stocks last.

Where's the Organic Beef? How meat gets to your plate

Grass-fed and -finished cattle offer a cleaner, leaner meat. Both types of meat contain saturated fat, but grass-fed cattle produce meat with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and lower levels of omega-6 fatty acids in a healthier ratio than cattle fed grain.
A 2009 study compared the nutrients of grass-fed and -finished beef with standard grain-finished beef. Researchers found that grass-fed and -finished beef is lower in fat, and higher in beta carotene, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E, and the B vitamins thiamine and riboflavin
Grass-fed beef is higher in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a substance that research is showing may be a cancer fighter. Grass-fed beef is also lower in the saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease.
Seek out 100 percent grass-fed and -finished beef for the healthiest option. It takes longer to bring a grass-fed animal to full weight, hence the higher price. But it’s a price worth paying, both for your own health and the health of the planet.
