My Story

Organigrow is set on 70 acres of prime agricultural land at Monaltrie (also known as Gundurimba) located about 7kms from the Lismore CBD, in the lush, fertile region of  Northern NSW.  The farm abounds with animals such as Echidnas, koalas and swamp wallabies who happily share their land with the chooks.  The abundant bird-life, composed of finches and wrens also enjoy the cover of thick bushes and undergrowth.

Our farm is Certified Organic (certifications are below), producing mixed fruit and vegetables which have been sold wholesale and retail for a number of years now, both locally and interstate. Organigrow is building a reputation for out quality and variety of organic produce.

Two generations of our family has taken care of our farm and it is Simon who is now our owner and manager. Having grown up with chickens, Simon holds a Bachelor of Environmental Science and uses the latest scientific data and organic principles to ensure Organigrow eggs are 100% organic and free-range. Our chickens are given as much space and freedom possible and have access to varied, healthy food.

All the elements of our farm work together, creating processes which benefit our work. The chicken manure (and the work of dung beetles) enriches our soil, increasing pasture, crop and tree growth. When our chickens graze, they also provide a weeding service which almost completely eliminates our need for till cultivation for establishing crops!

We cherish the land we live on and our aim, as farmers, has always, and will always be, to work with the land in the most organic way possible. We ensure¬† our hens benefit from access to a diverse and interesting environment, free from predators and with plenty of ‚Äėgreen peck‚Äô in an idyllic foraging environment.
