Byron Bay Organics

Welcome to Byron Bay Organics - bringing you fresh, healthy, sustainable organic food from the green hills behind beautiful Byron Bay, Australia. We specialise in growing certified organic ginger, turmeric and garlic and are also an established certified organic food distribution company with a warehouse and packing facility in Melbourne. Our property in Bangalow in the Byron Hinterland is the certified organic farm.  The organic way of life is a lifestyle choice that promotes good health and a sustainable environment.

Organic foods are grown in a way that complies with organic food quality standards set by the national government and the Organic Growers Association Small Producer Program. We are registered with the ACO (Australian Certified Organic).

For the vast majority of human history, all agriculture can be described as 'organic'; only during the 20th century was a large supply of new synthetic chemicals and pesticides introduced to the food supply. This more recent style of production is commonly referred to as "conventional" as this form of mass scale mechanised farming has become the commonly accepted way of producing cheap food. It's cheaper but the cost is in soil degradation and contamination of the soil with toxic chemicals and results infood that is often lower in nutrients and relatively tasteless.Organic food is just "food" grown the traditional way, with no artificial health endangering additives. Organic farming practices are sustainable and beneficial to the long term health of our environment. By buying organic food you are contributing to sustainable health of our planet.

Under organic production, the use of conventional non-organic pesticide (including insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides) and other artificial inputs (such as chemical fertilizers) is strictly monitored and precluded with a zero tolerance policy. Certification guarantees food purity. 

Know what you eat!

Healthy food is the basis of good health.

Many degenerative diseases can be linked to deficiencies in minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids in the commercialised conventional western diet.

An optimum amount of naturally occurring nutrients are required every day for maintaining good health. Vegetables, grains and legumes are true super foods.

Rich in micronutrients, these foods are packed with a whole host of antioxidants that fight disease and slow the ageing process.

They also contain considerable amounts of fibre which helps keep your digestive system healthy, slows blood sugar responses and keeps cholesterol levels in check.

Farming and the Environment

Organic farming is sustainable farming which does not damage the environment. By eating organic food you are contributing to a healthy planet by encouraging the expansion of organic farmin techniques which reduces the spread of artificial inputs to our environment and builds up the health of our soils.

We are passionate about the importance of the organic farming industry to the future of sustainable farming in Australia and we have an organc certification support business specialising in helping people make the transition from conventional to organic.
