About us...

Grassboots is a family owned micro farm on Yuin Country.


We subscribe to regenerative farming principles and producing food in a way that protects environment, grows top soil, sequesters carbon, supports public health, community and animals.


Using minimal tillage, no chemicals, cover crops and biological inputs we are growing food that's good for you and the environment.


We are starting off with a small market garden with an aim to grow organically to incorporate a wide range of other produce, sustainably farmed with purpose!



What and why we grow...

We have had an amazing response to last seasons garlic and unfortunately we have just sold our last bulk order. We planted two varieties this year - Italian Stripe and a local Bega Valley variety. Stay tuned for the upcoming season where we will trial a few different varieties and be back with plenty of garlic come the end of the year!


We are continually rotating crops and planting summer veggies and herbs such as tomatoes, rainbow chard, capsicum, cucumber, zucchinis and a wide variety of leafy greens. 


You can catch us at Bega Produce markets every Friday morning at Littleton Gardens so pop on in and grab yourself some fresh veggies!





Why crop rotation?

The principle of crop rotation has been used for thousands of years. Crop rotation is a practice designed to minimise pests and diseases while also helping to build and maintain happy, healthy soil and replacing nutrients that the previous crop may have removed. Using a combination of crop rotations and cover crops we can maximise the  use of available nutrients through carful planning without the need for synthetic inputs. 

Seasonal eating

Have you heard of a "locavore"? It means someone who eats what is grown locally and in season. This isn't just good for you but also good for the environment. Eating locally grown food means it has less distance to travel ie low food miles and also uses less resources. If we all eat seasonally we can help contribute to a more sustainable food system!

Beneficials

Planting flowers alongside your crops attracts bees and other pollinators as well as predators such as the lacewing wasp. Just a few of the beneficial plants in our garden are cornflowers, Californian poppies, petunias, nasturtiums, dahlias and marigolds. Marigolds and nasturtiums have the added bonus of being a tasty addition to your salads!

Tomatoes

We've put in a variety of regular and heirloom tomatoes this year. Expect to see a colourful crop with Black Krim, Jaune Flamme, Roma, Black Cherry, Brandywine, KY1 and Grosse Lisse.
