The Grain Family represents some of the next generation of the Gretschmann family who migrated to Tasmania many years ago to raise their family and undertake organic agriculture, making an important contribution to the entire Tasmanian farming sector by showing that small-scale organic agriculture can be an important contributor to the local economy.
Now Tonia, Gareth, Ida and Leo have embarked on a wonderful project to grown selected grains organically and to get them to the market as quickly as possible. They have even come to the attention of the famous Tivoli Road Bakery in South Yarra who are using their products.
They are growing spelt, wheat, oats, lentils, rye and linseed and selling them both at the farmers markets and online. They process their rolled oats weekly so that it is as fresh as possible.
We strongly support this initiative which shows that eschewing chemicals to ensure that the soil maintains its health and vigour is possible and, in fact, essential for the future of agriculture in Tasmania.
