We are Block 11 Organics. We have been growing organic produce since 1939. Now in our 82nd year and still loving what we do every day. We grow our produce on farms in Central West NSW and The Hawkesbury, and deliver to most regions around Sydney ( check locations on our site ). We are also stall holders at the Carriageworks Farmers market every Saturday.
We have been doing this a long time, three generations in-fact, and are still family owned and operated. Growing food organically is the only way we’ve ever done it, because it’s the only way we know how. When our grandparents started we didn’t have any chemicals or fertilisers available so we chose to grow seasonally. It also makes the food look and taste amazing.
I (Greg) run between both farms, helping manage the growing schedule and other odd jobs. My sister (Michelle) helps pack the boxes in the shed, making sure all the orders are getting to the right place at the right time. Our children help out where they can around their studies, and Dad (Frank) still runs around on the tractor. He loves telling us the things we should have done last week, and is an actual walking weather station.
We love what we do and are so happy to be providing fresh, organic food to people who love it.
All the best,
Greg, Michelle and the whole Block 11 team
