“Knowing that I am receiving a fair price for all my hard work and that everything I grow goes to feed someone is a key reason for being part of the MCO CSA project".
Sunforest Organic Farm – The Sunforest property is farmed and owned by Matthew and is situated in the red soil country over the escarpment of Byron Bay.
Matthew traditionally reared organic pigs, turkeys and chickens. Despite still having a few animals around the farm he now specialises in growing certified organic vegetables, such as sweet potato, snow peas and cucumbers. An organic farmer for more than 15 years, the quality and the taste of Matthew’s produce is always top notch, and the rich fertile soils of his property combined with his crop rotation ensure a high level of nutrient density in his crops.
“Being part of a CSA means I can spend more time on the farm looking after the crops and regenerating the land”.
