Heath, his wife Melissa and their baby boy Rockford, regular customers of Munch Crunch, bought the home delivery business from organic farmer Alasdair, who founded Munch Crunch Organics in 2008.
After more than 20 years working in high-rise corporates in Sydney, Melissa and Heath realised they needed a change of pace. News their baby was on the way solidified the couple’s desire for a sea change, and ignited the search for a lifestyle that would allow them to live more mindfully, and instil in their son a respect for nature, and knowledge of where food comes from.
They swapped their suits for boardies and dress shoes for Blundstones in 2015, and made the move to Northern NSW, where they landed in beautiful Bangalow. Along came Rocky, followed by the opportunity to join the Munch Crunch Organics community, and they’ve never looked back.
the spirit of munch crunch organics
Melissa and Heath are continuing Munch Crunch’s direct farmer to consumer relationship, but are launching a Community Supported Agriculture project in the hope of changing the way food is received. They believe small, ethically-minded communities hold the power to help change the way food makes its way from the farm to our plates.
Ultimately, Melissa and Heath want local organic farmers to receive a fair price for their produce, and in doing so ensure the communities they call home can continue to thrive.
