Organigrow

ACO certified organic poultry farmer

When Simon was a lad, he came to the view that the most worthwhile thing he could do was to grow food for people. Lucky enough to have one of the best soils for organic agriculture, red volcanic soils of Northern NSW, it was lacking in a few vital nutrients. Chook poo is a perfect match for these deficiencies, so began Simon’s journey starting with a few flocks of hens… The farm is owned by two generations of the Cripps Clark family. Simon holds a bachelor of environmental science degree. The decision to go into egg production (mid 2008) was carefully considered by Simon. Using the latest scientific data & organic principles Organigrow was born & is now an integral part of the organic food process on their farm. “We treat our hens with respect giving them conditions which they love, an idyllic foraging environment. Our family loves the land we live on & our aim as farmers has always & will always be, to work with the land & be organic in every sense.”
