It’s here: Organic and chemical-free produce
Find it all at Woombye’s Hinterland Harvest Market
HINTERLAND Harvest Market is a boutique-quality market with locally grown produce direct from the farmers and the farm gate.
There is no middle-man and there are no wholesalers which mean the customer’s money goes direct to the farmer and supporting the local farming families.
Next time you’re in the passenger seat heading east along the Nambour Connection Rd, cast your eyes to the farm on the left opposite the turnoff to Blackall Rd, Woombye and you’ll see a freshly dug patch of gorgeous brown soil.
Mick from Good Harvest Organic Farm has broken in the new block and with a pre-treatment of organic compost, nutrients and microbes, the soil is ready to be planted with next season’s crops.
When we talk of ‘food miles’ do you know how far have your fruits and vegies have travelled? It could be well over a thousand kilometres. Mick’s customers at the Hinterland Harvest Market are very happy to know their dinner vegies have travelled less than 1km from farm to market and Mick has even been known to duck back to the farm during the market to harvest more to satisfy customer demand. It’s not only market customers clamouring for Mick’s fresh produce, Wasabi Restaurant in Noosa has asked Mick to grow several crops specifically for their fresh seasonal menu.
A little further down the road at Glasshouse is Brendan from Eco-tasty Organics. Glasshouse is well known for its superb soil but some soils have been denuded of humus and nutrients from decades of intensive farming. Brendan continually works up the soils in his market garden using camel manure from QCamel and other nutrient ingredients in his ‘craft’ compost.
Camels are ruminant animals so their manure is well prepared for replenishing soils. Sourcing local ingredients holds well with Brendan’s commitment to Permaculture Principals and supports other local businesses. Another secret to Brendan’s success is his close attention to nutrients needed by the plants to maximise their health and growth.
Both Brendan and Mick are getting ready for the Spring planting. Mick is using his new block to grow carrots, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, brassicas and leafy greens. With our warm late winter weather, Brendan is preparing early for corn, zucchini, cucumber and beans.
