Our Raw Food Story

For years, our local food hub has sold all of the food that we grow here as well as supporting farmers and the community with a new sales channel to buy and sell their produce to loyal customers that seek out and value the transparency of the paddock to plate model.

We love telling the story of the farmer and how the food was grown. We grow heirloom varieties that often taste better and have characteristics that we love in our fresh food. Organically cultivated, we celebrate the living soils that we develop here on the farm from which our food grows. It is a true pleasure to be able to share the surplus with the local community.

Guided by a love of growing and cooking, we will continue to inspire the community to support eating of local and seasonal food. Formed in 2008 and developed thanks to the efforts of the community interested in the growing and distribution of high quality organic produce. We are committed to expanding the far reaching social, environmental and health benefits that flow from supporting the local food and farming economy.

We celebrate food stories and share our fascination for how it was grown. We insist that food grown without chemicals is the only acceptable option. To maintain quality, nutritional value and taste, we shorten the time between harvest and consumption by encouraging customers to purchase food directly from the farm (often harvested together at the time of purchase).

Over the past few years our environmentally aware customers have placed their orders online or visited the farm gate directly because they know that fresh food is best when harvested on the day of collection and they love that their food was not stored for extended periods or transported unnecessarily.

The raw food store that we are building here will stock an impressive range of exclusively organic foods sourced locally along the north coast region. The produce that we will also prepare in our commercial kitchen will take you on a culinary journey to satisfy the most discerning food enthusiast.

  • Consumers are disconnected from their food, its origin, farming methods and key merits
  • Money is moving out of the local communities where the original value is being created
  • Damage to the environment is being directly caused by monoculture large scale farming
  • Carbon footprint from food transportation due to distance between farm and consumer
  • Access to a diverse range of organic food is limited for many people
  • Local farmers need a centralised and coordinated food hub to empower stakeholders
  • Farmers are traditionally not experts in marketing and distribution
