We are proud to announce that we are one of the farms supporting Australia’s first large multi-farm CSA. Local box business Munch Crunch Organics was sold and has been purchased by Heath and Mel, who have a vision for the business to connect 5000 boxes to 50 farms from Brisbane to Ballina as a Community Supported Agriculture project giving folks an option to share the seasonal harvest of affordable certified organic crates freshly picked, and delivered to your door – check it out here.
In light of this recent development we have decided to stop offering our local Lifeforce CSA boxes, and hope that our wonderful subscribers may have a look at the Munch Crunch CSA and consider purchasing your box subscription from them….and if you are in the hinterland, to consider purcahsing from Clunes Nursery – Cam and Nic (whom we also supply). We have loved growing for you and hope we can continue to do so into the future through these exciting farm direct box offerings and our growing list of outlets.
So this week, Wed October 11th, will be our last veggie boxes offering for now…with that we will also change the frequency of our farmletter to monthly, so we can keep you connected with the farm. For more frequent updates and photos, please find us on Facebook and Instagram.
Spring is a busy time of year for many farmers…we are working to plant and establish crops now before the summer sun makes this more challenging. The rain has penetrated the land, and allowed us to turn over some more beds in preparation for transplants – 2 weeks ago they were like cement! Our beds of lettuce are growing beautifully, as well as our other leafy green crops, and summer veg…the farm is buzzing…I’ll remember to take more photos for our next farmletter!
I have especially been loving the flowers that are growing and being harvested in the gardens…in the picture above you see Nigella – Love-In-A-Mist…we also have Paper daisies in bloom, Queen of Anne’s Lace, Babys Breath, Snapdragons, Bells of Ireland, Cornflowers, Chrysanthemum Daisies and our population of ladybirds and other beneficial insects are THRIVING 🙂
