    Short Property Description

    We are a family of 5 (3 children 24,21,16) living on a 64 acre farm, 40 mins from Adelaide. The farm has beautiful views to Mt Lofty and surroundings. Great bushwalking & beaches are 45 mins away.

    We grow lettuces, bok choy, 30 varieties of herbs. We need help at Farmers Markets, with harvesting, planting, cutting, bunching and lots of general farm work. Good WiFi connection. Plenty of good, healthy food, great company with locals and other volunteers.

    We can accom up to 4 people easily. No children or pets. Mixed diet. NSI. Min stay 1 week.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    We grow lettuces and potted herbs, we cut those into salad mix and herb mixes, sell large potted kitchen herbs and micro herbs for greengrocers restaurant and cafe use.
    Trading at various farmer’s markets, having many loyal customers all over Adelaide, being passionate about growing and supplying healthy vegetables, we knew the demand was there to expand our variety of crops on offer. We found some niche market produce and no shortage of customers who appreciate our family’s growing practices, where we are situated and what the name Salad Greens and Kitchen Herbs has been standing for, for over 20 years now – that is quality, purity and service.

    Today the deliveries are expanding from the city and surrounding suburbs to leading distributors in and close to the buzzing ‘Pooraka Market. Being asked by leading restaurant chefs in Adelaide the Zehle family has started to grow edible flowers and more exotic micro herbs from seed in their plant nursery section of the business.

    There is growing interest in micro greens as the health benefits hold a higher content of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which are becoming well known. With 25 varieties of potted micro herbs and punnets of mixed micro greens, there is plenty of choice and an abundant selection throughout the Seasons. Mixing micro greens with edible petals from our garden and an exciting, colourful garnish has been created and becomes a stunning decoration for any meal.
