The Jurgens pride themselves on growing environmentally and socially-sustainable, safe food. Their farming philosophy is driven by the belief that a happy plant is a healthy plant. They work with Mother Nature to allow a plant to meet its full potential naturally.
The Jurgens’ use precision farming to minimise destruction and compaction of soil; a ‘Bugs for Bugs’ Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system which uses ‘beneficial’ insects to control pests which are harmful to crops.
They use long fallows and crop rotation to maintain soil sustainability and good soil microbiology.
Composting is a vital part of their program, again to improve soil structure and improve soil sustainability. The compost is made on farm, using natural products to produce organic carbon.
These biodynamic farming methods produce food that is better for you and has deeper, richer flavours.
