We run our market garden using organic, bio-intensive, low-till principles. We feed our soil with biochar, home-made compost, and compost teas. The result is nutrient dense, vibrant food which tastes amazing and delivers a health - giving boost.
All of our products are packaged in reusable containers or home-compostable packaging. If you don't have your own compost you can return it to us, and we will compost it for you.
