Mockingbird Hill’s organic vegetables and herbs are supplied by Mt Plenty Farm Fresh, an old plantation that is bordered by a pristine spring-fed river nestled in the foothills of Walkerswood and who have been certified organic growers for two and a half years.
The farm believes that the food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison. Instead of growing crops using pesticides and chemical fertilisers that have a long-term negative affect on nature and the soil, it enriches soil fertility with its own homemade compost made from seaweed, manure and green grass. This is not always the easiest way to do things, in a world of profit-first and nature-last; it certainly isn’t the way most crops are grown, but it’s the way it should be done. It is sustainabile, and cares for the land without contaminating the water table, the crops and the staff ensuring the earth is a better place for our children and grandchildren.
