What are we about
We have set out to relive the heritage of our grandparents & of Bendigo - the diversified family farm.
Huntly Organics is an intensive market garden based in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. We grow a diverse range of food crops, primarily annual vegetables, using natural, chemical free practices and a focus on building healthy, living soil. Our well loved specialty products include the Huntly Organics Seasonal Salad Mix & Rainbow Microgreen Mix. We aim to expand to include small scale heritage grain production, fruit trees, berries and native Australian food crops in production over the next several years. Our overarching mission is to prove that when it comes to agriculture; it doesn’t need to be bigger, it just needs to be better.

Where we came from
Huntly Organics started out with Jordan & Emma as Aotearoa Market Garden in our little sister country of New Zealand on just a half acre. The aim was to produce a meaningful amount of healthy food, intensively on a small leased block of land; all the while actively sequestering carbon and nurturing a healthy living soil in the growing space. We’re happy to say that this goal was met with enormous success.
Fast forward 5 years, and we are located on our own 12 acre farm in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. We produce a variety of different crops seasonally, and have become a household name in Bendigo for freshness, taste and sustainable practices.
Where we are going
Our mission is create a model of agriculture that can be adapted to enable other young farmers to take up the life and love of farming. A recent UN statistic states that 70% of the world’s food supply is produced by small landholders, using 20% of the worlds arable land. We aim to be a part of leading Bendigo and Central Victoria in the change to become lean, green and a thriving, modern hub of small farming, biodiversity, and family farm ownership

From the bottom of our hearts,
Thank you for your support,

The Huntly Organics Team
Jordan is a vegetable grower, passionate about transforming products and a local food advocate, the grandson of local farmers Jack & Joyce. He is an avid reader, musician and writer in his spare time.
Emma hails from the far off land of market gardens, France! Also the grand-daughter of family farmers in her home region of Alsace. She creates the life on the farm, planting seeds, tending plants, harvesting and delivering produce.
Belle digs holes in poorly chosen places, and harvests all of the strawberries. It's not as helpful as it sounds.
But just look at that face. She's a good girl.
