What is Certified Organic?

Certified Organic farms & produce are thoroughly audited by an independent body known as an Organic Certifier.  The Organic Certifiers have extensive standards which all producers must strictly comply by.

All Certified Organic Farms have annual farm audits, which include soil testing & thorough planning, composting & planting records.

Our Organic Farmers are kept very busy to ensure the Organic Certification Guarantee.
