Our work began in food co-operatives and bulk buying groups in Brisbane, trying to source local, ethical and sustainable produce with our friends and families.
Finding quality staple foods through organics wholesalers was often disappointing, as most of the produce was coming through global supply chains with minimal transparency.
Our frustration led us to start talking to Australian growers directly, in the hope of sourcing from a person rather than a corporation. Once we began to look, we found many small and medium scale family owned farms around this country producing a great diversity of crops.
We started taking this produce to the market stall at West End, and realised that people beyond our direct networks were searching for the same thing.
The response from the community has been humbling, and with the support of those around us, we've been able to set up a base of operations in a warehouse in Moorooka.
Our mission is to put people, ethics and sustainability at the heart of South-East Queensland's food system. We aim to contribute to the health of local communities: economically, socially, and environmentally.
We will do this by: Supporting smallholder farmers with roots in their community, growing food in an ecologically sustainable manner; Creating avenues for people to access this food affordably; And helping to develop vibrant, transparent local food networks.
