Many of you have been enjoying our fresh garlic, and yes garlic is meant to be juicy, not the dried, chlorine-bleached, methyl bromide fumigated imported Chinese stuff that the supermarkets pass off.
Each week a box of up to seven vegetables will be personally delivered to you, containing produce that will have been harvested, field washed and packed the day before, ensuring that the nutrients and goodness are at their peak. And you'll be surprised how long the goods will retain their freshness. Based on the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model that has proved so popular in Europe, America and Japan, when you join our CSA, you'll be purchasing a share in the harvest that comes from our market garden here in the Hastings Valley on the New South Wales Mid North Coast.
What we are doing here is following a dream, with the aim to be the most productive, efficient and profitable bio-dynamic farmers in the country, supplying the highest quality produce to our community. And while matters have not progressed as far as we had hoped, we've certainly had some real wins and are moving in the right direction.
Set to start delivering healthy nutritious vegetables to 25 families in the Hastings Valley from early October, Near River Produce is a model of food production and distribution that has become very popular in other parts of the world over the last couple of decades. We firmly believe that it is a worthy scheme to develop here in Australia.
