Our passion for growing our own food started with the realisation that health is directly related to the nutritional value of food. When we began remineralisaing the soil, our sheep began to produce more, lived longer and required very little medical intervention. We strongly believe how food is grown is more important than the type of food when it comes to nutritional value and health. The number of fruits and vegetables you eat are irrelevant if they have been grown poorly with little nutritional value.
Food grown on the chemical farming system used by many conventional farms worldwide is often nutitionally poor and grown with excessive use of chemical fertilisers, specifically nitrogen and phosphorous, which neglect many of the important broard spectrum minerals needed in food for our health. On top of this, the over use of toxic pesticides in growing food inevitably end up in that food, creating a great deal of health concerns across the population.
We grow enough food for our family all year round and often trade excess produce with other GrowSafe® users.
