Red Ochre Organic Farm & Love that Seed

Red Ochre Farm was born from the hard work and enthusiasm of Megan. At this stage it is not registered with an Organic Certification Body. However, we do use organic practices and methods in our farming. Many farmers grow ‘organically’ but do not carry certification; these growers go ‘beyond-organic’, caring for earth and people factors in a deeper way.

Love that Seed is a small organic nursery which breeds the best of the best seeds for vegetables, fruit, herbs and other edibles. They sell seed at low prices to make growing your own more affordable and accessible. All seeds are raised up as chemical free (organic) seedlings that are for sale to the general public and for supply to retail stores.
