Unique Opportunity

Join the Southern Light Herbs growers’ network.

Southern Light Herbs is a fully integrated certified organic business, growing, processing, packing and wholesaling an extensive range of premium quality dried herbal products. The teas and culinary herbs are available Australia wide through health food and whole food stores, food co-ops, naturopaths and herbalists, cafes and fine food stores.

Together with the Maldon herb farm, Southern Light Herbs is supplied by its dedicated network of 25 growers through southern eastern Australia. Over time growers have become more efficient and focused on the crops they grow and how they grow them. As their knowledge of each herb increases, they are able to design a garden mix which produces the optimal return while being in balance with their individual climatic conditions, soil types, water supply, farming equipment and labour availability.

Southern Light Herbs has a strong point of difference gained over 30 years of actively working with growers and natural health care professionals to produce premium certified organic herbal products. As growers ourselves we continually work to improve our growing, drying and production systems, to educate newcomers to the ways of organics and as a group to consistently produce herbal teas which exceed our customer’s expectation.

Southern Light Herbs is committed to support the new Greenhood Organic Farms growers under the existing proven consultation and purchasing system. In addition, growers will be provided with a series of practical workshops including external consultants, one on one consultancy to assist in the development of individual garden layout and business plans and regular group meetings to discuss shared questions and problem solving.

If your dreams lay in another area of organic horticulture, you would still be most welcome to join the workshops, as topics such as compost production, irrigation and organic land management will be valuable to all.
