"Thanks for your feedback. In our opinion nurses should be some of the best paid people on the planet for all the fantastic work that you do. Unfortunately it is also farmers that suffer from low incomes and carry a huge amount of risk growing food in our ever changing climate. There is a perception that organic food is expensive, which has come about from the world of consumerism that we live in, meaning that the powerful supermarkets pay the farmer on average 10-30 cents in the dollar for fruit and vegetables they sell and keep the rest themselves.
This basically means that in the Western world we have this false economy and people are hoodwinked into believing that food only costs a pittance to produce. Myself and the farmers we know work around 60-70 hours/week and earn around $7/hr. Is that too much? Further to that organic food has been proven over and over again by peer reviewed scientific journals that the vitamin and mineral levels are higher than chemically grown food and that the heavy metals are less. Therefore meaning that you need to eat less of organic food to get the same nutritional content as cheaper chemical food, making it actually cheaper.
Hope this helps put the price of organic food into perspective. There is more info in this article if your interested in the nutritional differences. On a lighter note our small seasonal organic boxes are really good value at $39 and you also get $5 off your first order with recipes and tips and tricks on our blog for getting the most out of your box. Have an awesome day!"To read more about the benefits of organics and the difference between conventional and organics visit:

You’re invited to a free movie screening and cooking demonstration!Byron Shire Council and North East Waste are hosting a free screening of the Canadian food waste documentary, Just Eat It at the Byron Community Centre on Wednesday 27 April. Movie Screening 7.30-9pm: Just Eat It a film about food waste, guarantees you will never look at your fridge the same way again. We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing more than a third of it in the bin? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. Cooking demonstration 6-7pm: Prior to the screening there will be a free Love Food Hate Waste 'leftover makeover' cooking demonstration with local sustainable food consultant, Alison Drover. Munch Crunch Organics supports the Love Food Hate Waste program by donating some of our leftover fruit & veg to Alison to be used in their workshops. For bookings and more information please go to the Just Eat It event page.

A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition in February 2016 showed that organic milk contains around 50% more beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids than non-organic. In addition to organic milk, the nutritional differences also apply to organic dairy like butter, cream, cheese and yoghurt. This study, the largest systematic review of its kind, broke down the data from…
Nothing in life remains the same. There is however, often an idealistic and sentimental view in organic agriculture that things must remain the same to keep up with the traditional founders of the organic agriculture movement. Founders such as Rudolf Steiner, Sir Albert Howard, Lady Eve Balfour and J.I Rodale, who wrote in 1954 “Organics…
