The search for "real" free range and humanely treated animals started a long time ago when the reality of what was legally considered "free range" and the idea of happy, healthy animals came into stark contrast.  Finding out the free range chickens are only afforded an A4 piece of paper's with of space, did not fit into our idea of free roaming animals.  Also the supplement feeding of animals kept in lots of genetically modified corn and unnatural vegetarian and animal by product feeds did not seem natural or healthy.  What happened to good ol' fashioned farming?  What happened to integrity and caring about animals not just profits and margins…. That's how we found these guys…

Red Barn FARMS

Our free range, pasture fed chicken farmers are based in George.  They grow chickens on pasture in moveable houses! You haven’t tasted delicious chicken like this since your grandmother made a roast chicken for Sunday lunch.  The closest to organic that you can get in SA. They also supply us with indigenous organic eggs..

Naturally Organic - Veggies

The ideals that Skye upholds are close to the hearts of many. He wants healthy, organic food to be available for all; he wants organic farming to be proved a viable option; he wants to sell locally, he acknowledges the importance of reducing not only his own carbon footprint, but enabling others to do the same, by producing quality food on our doorstep. He is a person who holds the fine balance between dreaming and doing. Bella Vita Farm Ermanno (Cheech) and Jules Kovacich began growing mushrooms in 2002 at their farm near Wilderness in the Garden Route, combining their shared love of mushrooms and the countryside with the culinary flair Cheech developed during his 12 years as a head chef in London, following an apprenticeship at the Carlton Hotel, Jo'burg. Highly skilled and extemely innovative, Cheech takes great care in selecting his ingredients, and each product in the present range of Bella Vita Condiments is testimony to months of diligent and dedicated development, and the use of his unique blends and techniques. DOCKE Farm Brian & Lou Docke (pronounced 'docker') have an organic farm in Noordhoek where they grow uncertified vegetables, which they sell to the likes of the Olive Station, ethical co-op and Organic zone in Muizenberg. Their cows roam freely and are not fed fodder or hormones and their milk is sold to Imhoff farm, where Carol uses it to make organic cheese . They also have honey, when the bees have been busy and the south-easterly not strong enough to hinder their activity.
