Merri Bee farms are permaculture properties in Nannup and Karridale . Developing for 30 years in Nannup we have established hundreds of useful species of fruit, nut and fodder plants. We’ve installed swales, solar panels and sustainable buildings but our main focus is on the soil.
Chemical fertilizers and the herbicides and pesticides they make necessary all conspire to leave the soil low in biology resulting in low -nutrient crops which are dependent on “life support” ( more and more chemicals ). These fossil fuel based inputs SO contribute to climate change. We have withdrawn our support from agribusiness at Merri Bee Organic Farmacy’s, and our produce is grown with quality compost and mulch which enlivens the soil and the food that comes from it. Huge populations of beneficial microbes in soil mean the water and nutrient cycles are working for the vibrant health of the biosphere and our customers. Support your gut flora with Merri Bee produce for a myriad of health benefits to every organ including the brain.
