One of our local growers, Peninsula Fresh Organics has been supplying Organic Angels with their beautiful quality organic produce, such as lettuce, leek, pak choi and other leafy greens. The cos lettuce and chard in the boxes recently have come from Peninsula Fresh. Occasionally we can get our hands on some speciality heirloom produce such as dutch carrots and romanesco.
Peninsula Fresh Organics is a family owned and run business based in Baxter, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria on 40 acres of land. The family are 5th generation market farmers and have owned the Baxter property for 40 years. To help supplement the demand of organics, they also farm on 100 acres at Barham on the Murray River and some land near Daylesford.
All of their land is certified organic with ACO (Australian Certified Organic) and they are also accredited with the VFMA (Victorian Farmers Market Association). Their produce is picked fresh the evening before market to ensure the best possible freshness.
If you are down the Mornington Peninsula area, make sure you drop into Peninsula Fresh during their farm gate sales opening hours and grab some beautiful heirloom produce to try.
