PRODUCERS

But all believe that every element in the ecosystem is inextricably inter-connected and all farms are managed using regenerative, holistic management practices that are designed to optimise plant, animal and environmental health.

Most of the farmers we represent would happily accept the Joel Salatin description and call themselves 'soil farmers'. While the output for the end consumer might be a gorgeous leg of bio-dynamic lamb or a tray of plump sausages, back at the farm, the producer is concentrated on promoting a rich, healthy, biodiverse ecosystem.

Healthy soil is the foundation on which everything else depends. Soil that's alive, friable and full of humus provides a fertile home for plants, fungi and insects, allowing roots to penetrate and access critical minerals and nutrients. Healthy, vigorous plants provide a fertile home and diet for animals living on pasture and the animals, in turn, fertilise the soil. Well-tended animals with good genetics that live free to range on healthy pastures are guaranteed high welfare standards and, in turn, provide us with a healthier and more rewarding eating experience.            

We go out on farm trips about five or six times a year and we try to visit all the farms we represent as often as possible. It's our job to answer all your questions, even those you didn't even know you should be asking. It's our responsibility to provide you with all the information you need to make the right choices for you and anyone else you're feeding. Read our guiding principlesThey determine who we work with, what we buy and how we run our business.

Who we work with, how often and for how long

Over the past 15 years, we've visited over 80 farms and worked with many of them in one way or another. Some farmers are like family - we've been buying from them regularly each fortnight or month for over 10 years and we feel as though we've grown up together. With others, the relationship is regular but seasonal, so we'll buy from them each year when they have stock to spare. Others were part of our core group of suppliers and very dear to us but their lives changed and they decided to retire or move onto other pursuits. In every situation, we've been enriched by the exchange and learned much about ecological farming and how to work with producers.

There are some restaurants and retailers who present to consumers in a way that makes it appear that they only, or mainly, source from sustainable producers, despite only rarely buying these products. This is deceptive and misleading but consumers often aren't in a position to disprove or question these claims.

Because of this, we think it's important to be transparent about how often we receive produce from the farmers we're working with and how long we've worked with them.

These are the farmers we currently represent.
