The Story

The Baw Baw Food Hub grew out of a little local vegetable box scheme originally started in 2013 by Baw Baw Organics, which represents two small organic farms in West Gippsland growing a wide range of vegetables, fruit, berries and nuts. As organic producers selling at Farmer’s Markets, we learned that there is great enthusiasm for fresh, healthy organic food. Working with other local organic farmers and a small group of volunteers, we are developing a model for increasing access to local food in our community, while also helping to generate and support interest among local farmers in producing for local markets.

We are keen to promote the value of local and organic food and of small to medium farms producing a diversity of fresh produce and are eager to help to develop a thriving local food economy in our region.
