Welcome to CQ Organics
CQ Organics is the culmination of many years of learning the skills to improve the environment, the landscape, the animals, the plants. Ethical food production is like a jigsaw puzzle, which has a multitude of pieces that all fit together perfectly once you understand the components.

It is simply “a natural fit” for ethical producers who want to supply healthy clean food for the local community. We want to create a safe place for our children, Mathew and Lachlan to grow up and be part of a viable business and to know every action is a positive learning experience. Life on the farm should be a wonderful time where we get close to nature and can be involved in healthy decisions every day.
We want to be part of the new clean green economy where farmers produce food that is truly ethically healthy and not just food contaminated with chemicals. Our goal is to create a number of enterprises including beef, pigs, sheep, chickens and fodder crops on farm to help other families eat healthy.
In the past decades, many farmers have lost their connection to the soil and communities have lost their connection to the farmers. This is your chance to reconnect to the local farmer, to be part of a big movement worldwide and to regain your health.
