Basically, my wife and I live on a 25 acre bush block in beautiful Queensland. We sell seeds, plants, herbs and whatever else we can rustle up. We grow many different types and varieties of plants, everything we can think of, and we do it all properly, the old fashioned way.
Every hole is hand dug, every plant is hand watered, hand pruned, picked, harvested, sun-dried, winnowed, sorted, packed, stored, counted, checked for germination rates and seed viability and then sold, all within 12months guaranteed. If its not sold, it gets fed to the chooks, spread at random, given away to friends, or just composted.
We don’t sell old seeds, we don’t use chemicals, we don’t grow “F1 Hybrids” that don’t breed true to form, and we wouldn’t even dream of having Genetically Modified ANYTHING on the property. Bugger that!
We use no fancy sorting or packing machines, rotary hoes, harvesters, tractors, or any of that stuff, just simple old fashioned hard work.
Pick and mattock for the rock, shovel for soil and sand, rake for the mulch. (and of course lots of sweat…)
The same can be said about every step of our production process.
We use blends of various herbs along with companion planting to control our insects, and only when they get out of hand. We have also bought in beneficial insects for release in the past, and will do that occasionally in the future if/when we can afford to in the future.
All our fertilizer is just a mix of grasses, legumes, unwanted weeds, mulch, compost, and our own free range chook and guinea pig manure. We grow it all ourselves and that way we know for sure there are no toxic sprays or heavy metals accumulating in the soil either.
We have a large variety of different plants that you wont find in the supermarkets, and we grow everything on a 3-6month rotation all year round.
Some things like Winter, some things like Summer, but I grow them when I want to, and they just have to deal with it. Surprisingly they generally do. This does however cause huge numbers of losses, and as we are constantly selecting, and breeding from those surviving few, you can guarantee the plants you get from us are tough and ready for whatever you throw at them!
Nothing gets a free ride at our place, and if you want to see how we do everything check this link out >>> You don’t have to be a Facebook member or sign in or join or ANYTHING, just to have a look at the photos and instructional’s
On a final note, if its not in the store, that’s because it’s not for sale right now.
But, if your really keen you can send me a message by clicking here…
Also, if you see an error or spelling mistake please let me know (send me a link to the page).
Make sure to tell your friends, neighbours and even your family, where you got all this cool stuff from.
Spam our name and links across the Internet folks!!! (We could really do with the extra sales!)
Check back all the time too, as every month I will be adding at least a couple new items.
We have about 300-400 different varieties here, and the list just gets bigger every day, so you never know what we will be harvesting next!
Oh yeah, last of all, PLEASE don’t be offended.
The thing is, me and the Mrs are not really the most social of folks.
It’s really not personal, and I am sure we do have a lot in common, but no visitors please…
We have an on-line business, we don’t advertise a phone number, we have no mobile, and we live way out on a dirt road, in the scrub.
That’s all on purpose.
Hope you understand…..
Thanks a bundle for checking out our store.
