Amanda's Story continues...
The term ‘certified organic’ means, my farm partners and their products have been verified, by an independent certification agency, as being organic. This is the highest organic standard in Australia and means that every part of the supply chain, starting with the soil on the farm, has been through rigorous audits and testing, adhering to meticulous standards set by the Australian Certified Organic Standard (ACOS).There is a tremendous difference between providing ‘certified organic’ products and ‘organic products’ – click here to read more on this in our Q&A section.
BCO will only source produce from organic grazing properties, who believe in the ethical treatment of animals and who are strictly certified organic. The humane treatment of grazing usually goes hand in hand with certified organic farming, however, there are many organic Grazier’s who finish on GRAIN. Personally, I don’t believe that cattle and sheep should eat grain, therefore, my graziers do not finish their animals on grain, which gives the meat a more succulent flavour and also a better life for the animal.I work closely with four amazing farmers, all of whom are equally as committed to being truly organic.
