Growing & Harvesting
The art of growing certified organic, nutrient dense emerald green Barley and Wheat Grass
  • We believe, the planet, the soil, people and their health are one
  • Being certified organic ensures our low input link to the environment
  • Our farms are cleverly planted with crop rotation being an important aspect to feed the soil nutrients naturally
  • Clean, pristine water from the Southern Alps feeds through our rivers and onto our land
  • All product is traceable back to its origin, providing confidence in the authenticity of our product
  • We time our harvest perfectly so we only harvest the young, green edible part of the leaf
Drying
Innovative, on-farm drying. The 1st of its kind in New Zealand
  • Our new state of the art dryer is an amalgamation of nature with high technology and organic principles forming a sophisticated model of dehydrating leaf
  • The flexibility around having a dryer on farm means we can dry our leaf at the perfect time to ensure optimum nutrient levels
  • On-farm drying serves to protect our environment as we are not transporting the leaf (which is 90% water) long distances to another drying facility
  • We dry slowly at the optimum heat level to not damage key nutrients, yet control microbiological levels – it's a delicate science
