Buy local, eat well and smile often: that’s the mantra of Mullumbimby’s Lifeforce Farm and it’s a pretty good rule of thumb.
Luckily for us, Lifeforce Farm make it possible for us to buy local and eat well when it comes to salad greens and herbs. That sure makes us smile, and we’re certain it’ll make you smile too.
The force behind Lifeforce is the happy farming pair of Sheia and Isaac. With collective wisdom garnered from careers in microbiology and as a produce warehouse manager and primary wholesaler at Rocklea Markets in Brisbane, it makes sense that these two know how to grow quality organic produce.
All their crops are soil grown, not hydroponic. This means their produce benefits from the natural relationship between the plant and the nutrients found in the ground.
Fundamentally logical when you think about it…
Their produce is also certified organic, which provides enormous benefits but also real challenges when farming in the sub-tropics. Learning to manage the farm through succession planting, soil health, bespoke infrastructure and what they term bio-intensive agriculture has been a case of lifelong education for the pair.
And while they work their land with reverence, we’re delighted to use their delicious produce to nourish body and spirit.
