When you cast your eye across the Herb Farm, you see large greenhouses, also called hothouses.These hothouses provide a warm environment without the harsh sun rays to nurture the herbs.Tables are full of trays which hold individual pots of herbs.Water runs in the trays under the pots providing nutrients to the herbs. This is called hydroponics.It is a great growing method which means the herbs are not in contact with soil and subject to flooding conditions, and we can maintain our commitment to quality for you as the customer.The herbs are grown using an inert medium called perlite, which is resistant to bacteria and diseases. Our hydroponic techniques are consistent with those used in certified organic production. We are certified to the highest Australian food code quality standards. From time to time, we are required to draw upon other certified hydroponic herb farms to supplement orders for cut herbs.
