Lots of News for the First Market of February

One of our most beautiful products is Kind Organics Cosmic Blend salad mix, which brings so much colourful joy into a salad bowl that I love to take it to potlucks. When there is a pile of edible flower petals at the top of the bag, it’s a feast for the eyes.

If you’re curious to see how they do all the remarkable things they do at Kind, have a look at this video made when Curtis Stone visited the farm. You can see Tamas and Sandra‘s son Sasha and farm manager Julian working full tilt, and you’ll be amazed at the scope of the whole undertaking.
