New Cold Room Arrives

Well folks, it’s been a long time coming…13 years in fact…but we have finally purchased a new cold storage room. Actually, our old cold room has done a great job up til now, but recently, with increasing demand for our produce from wholesalers, shops and market customers, we decided we needed more space. And space we have got! There’s plenty of room to keep everything cool between the time we harvest and send everything to market.

The delivery was an exciting moment for us, especially for Tan, as she is the one who arranges all the crates of produce in the cold room as they come off the truck. With our old cold room, this was quite a task…everything had to be stacked very carefully in order to squeeze everything in! As you can imagine, this could be a bit time inefficient…trying to juggle crates within limited space… With the new cold room, we can just stroll in and place the crates of veggies anywhere we like! What luxury…

Our new cold room has more than ample space…enough so that there can be an aisle down the centre, making it easy to pick out boxes for the shops, or produce for customers. Importantly, this gives us room to expand in the future, especially if we take on a second Organic Market somewhere in the region. Tania was full of anticipation as she opened the door….

And none of us were disappointed…

After everyone had a look inside, Rod went to work with the tractor to shift it into place. Anthony (Binder) was on hand to help shift it to its new position next to the packing shed. And Michelle was there to snap all the action on her camera!

The new cold room will be fully functional from the end of May.

Farm Walk — Saturday, 27 June 2015

NEWSFLASH — Our next Farm Walk will take place on Saturday 27th June 2015, starting at 10.30am. You don’t need to book.

Our address is 776 Tyalgum Creek Road, Tyalgum, NSW. The farm is really easy to find. The main street in Tyalgum village is Coolman Street (look for Tyalgum Hotel, Flutterbies, Tyalgum Hall, Tyalgum Public School, etc) and you keep driving straight out past the school where Coolman Street becomes Tyalgum Creek Road. We are on the right about 8km from there. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 27th!

Kind regards from Rod and Tania Bruin & the crew at Summit Organics.

Webpage Launch

We are excited to announce the launch of our new webpage

At Summit Organics we are passionate about organic food. We believe that healthy food creates healthy bodies…and healthy food comes from healthy, living soil. At Summit we put a lot of love into our soils, and people frequently tell us they can taste that difference in our produce. You see we only sell what we grow – and throughout the year that consists of more than 50 varieties of vegies and herbs. And we only sell locally, so you can feel at ease about the food miles and freshness of your food. All our produce is harvested just prior to sale – it couldn’t get any fresher – straight from our farm to your plate. Here in these pages you can find out all there is to know about us: what we grow; why we grow; who we are; what we’re up to…
