Lux Organics is a small family farm in Ngongotaha providing fresh, certified organic vegetables, microgreens and herbs to the local market. Produce is available through Brown Owl Organics (197 Ranolf St), or via online sales on Open Food Network. From spring through to autumn we have a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group for weekly vege boxes at the best possible price – email us for details. We deliver by 100% electric van. Please note, you can only visit the farm by appointment, and we do not have a shop on site.
Only 10km from Rotorua's central business district, Lux Organics farm produce is professionally grown with the highest level of care, reaching our customers within 24 hours of harvest.
This level of freshness cannot be beaten!
We grow a wide range of crops (over 30 in fact!) including salad greens, lettuce, spinach, silverbeet, kale, collards, herbs, microgreens, beetroot, turnips, radishes, carrots, cabbages, broccoli, tomatoes, capsicums, eggplant, celery, fennel, beans, peas, cucumbers, gherkins, zucchini, squash, pumpkin, garlic, onions, cut flowers and seedlings. In choosing what to grow our focus is on nutritional quality, colour and flavour. We’re quite keen to try new things and we love to work with chefs who are looking for us to grow speciality produce by agreement.
“Organic” means crops are grown without artificial fertilisers and chemicals, and all inputs are uncontaminated and completely free of genetic modification. Successful organic gardens rely on working with nature, adapting natural processes and patterns (such as crop rotation and companion planting), using natural inputs (such as compost, seaweed and slow-release minerals) and making use of biological controls when necessary (for example predatory wasps to eat aphids).
As a member of OrganicFarmNZ since July 2016 we have been adhering to the Biogro Organic Standards and we are now fully certified organic.
