We sell certified organic and holistic products direct from local cottage producers and small manufacturers...

NO FRILLS - AUTHENTIC - DIRECT
Your Organic Markets is on a food mission! That's why we achieved our organic certification with OFC too - because our mission is to connect our customers with a new 'authentic' organic experience; which they can rely on and, is more affordable across -the-board. Our offer is truly DIRECT FROM PADDOCK-TO-PLATE! There are mostly no middlemen in our supply chain because we source from our own farmers and producers at great effort, predominantly in the SEQ region. We are agents for a number of farms and distributors too. A growing number of certified organic cottage farms grow exclusively for Your Organic Markets and we source from over 150 cottage suppliers. We work to provide a consistently wider choice of reliable sources of quantity and quality of organic products.
The majority of our produce is from around SE Queensland. Some items such as organic bananas periodically come from far north, and our true free-range pastured pigs come from Stanthorpe direct from local cottage growers! In SE Queensland (with numerous certified organic farms and cottage manufacturers we source directly from), and in northern NSW regions (products such as lemon myrtle, mueslis and nuts), and seafood direct from trawlers at Deception Bay, Mooloolooba and Ballina - our supply chain arrangements mean we are able to deliver straight to you within a day or two for most of our product - if it is not authentic organic or holistic farmed (permaculture, 100% chemical-free), fresh or the highest quality, we just don't sell it!
We work hard to eliminate uneccessary costs added by distributors (from our supply chain). Direct is best! And we mean 'authentic direct'!. You should be able to recognize this in much of our pricing. We are ever increasing our product range by directly going to cottage growers and producers and connecting them uniquely to our members. That's our mission!
Our direct business model is also based on a membership community and various incentives such as bulk buying, minimum quantity purchases on some items, a flexible delivery system (with free delivery for quantity purchases), a no frills environment, and of course by cutting out the middleman in most cases. To us, 'flashy' rates way below 'quality', 'value' and 'authenticity'!
Many of our products are made by hand (soaps, jams, goat milk products, some yoghurts and cheeses), are cottage industy (such as our eggs and hand-processed chickens, raw honey, and fresh produce). These are produced in genuine small cottage farms using certified organic, or permaculture or bio dynamic methods, or in low input environments with real quality control and no chemicals. We are averse to synthetic ingredients, unatural interference, mass farming methods and poisons, and so are our suppliers. So, we guarantee our members that our products are authentic, certified organic and or ethically and holistically produced. We avoid non-Australian produce as a rule, but some things are best from outside of Australia. These include coconut oil, palm sugar and coconut milk which are from certified quality controlled organic producers we have already researched as authentic. Another example is a range of some Italian certified organic products which we are finding to be popular because the quality is excellent!
We believe in certified organic and promote it. We are certified with OFC and we are paid up members of the Organic Federation of Australia (OFA). Most of our farmers and suppliers are certified with these groups:
- OFC - ORGANIC FOOD CHAIN
- ACO - AUSTRALIAN CERTIFIED ORGANIC
- IFOAM - INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF ORGANIC AGRICULTURE MOVEMENTS
- USDA ORGANIC - UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
- OGA - ORGANIC GROWERS OF AUSTRALIA CERTIFIED
- NASAA - NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
- AUS-QUAL - AUS-QUAL
- FRESHCARE - FRESHCARE ON-FARM QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM
- SAFE FOOD QLD - SAFE FOOD PRODUCTION QLD (SFQ)
- DEMETER - BIO DYNAMIC RESEARCH INSTITUTE
- HUMANE CHOICE - TRUE FREE RANGE AND PASTURE-BASED PRODUCTION SYSTEMS
- QLD FREE RANGE - FREE RANGE POULTRY ASSOCIATION OF QUEENSLAND
- CAREFARMED - CAREFARMED LOCALLY GROWN ORGANIC AND BIODYNAMIC FARMING PRINCIPLES
We also recognize there are many cottage products that are not certified, yet are produced ethically in true permaculture and organic farming and chemical-free environments. Some of these have cooperatively joined to create groups and systems such as for example 'Carefarmed' and 'Certified Naturally Farmed'. These low input methods are valid authentic holistic farming methods - we have sourced our products seeking 'authenticity', so we will tell you what our products are and where they are from and you can be sure, they have known inputs, are authentic and able to be researched. We do not knowingly support Halal products and all our meats and poultry are non Halal.
Our Humane Choice free range eggs for example are from small producers. Our largest farm (see the pic) in the Mary Valley started out running only 500 true free range, pastured hens on 1,000 acres. They now have 2,000 hens in movable caravans of 500 - still small by industry standards. These chickens are so healthy and the eggs nutritious, tasty and fresh. We pick them up freshly laid and make them available to our members within hours. Our eggs are so tasty because the hens are stress free, hormone, steroid and antibiotic free. They are naturally roaming and pastured i.e. eating grass and insects and a quality natural feed with no gmo inputs or synthetic ingredients such as synthetic methionine. Chickens need methionine for protein and amino acids, but not that stuff. Ours get sprouted corn and other natural sources.
The 'see' and 'taste' is the clincher! And, once you eat our eggs or our poultry meat too, you will realize what you have been missing.
Our poultry meat is from true free range chickens; free from steroids, antibiotics, growth promotants or interferance, stress-free. They are hand-processed on the day before delivered – that’s fresh! Our certified organic turkey, beef, pork and lamb come direct from the growers. We supply these either fresh or frozen (fresh).
Our soaps are cold processed, with no petrochemicals. They are gentle on skin with low ph. They contain fresh goat's milk, only naturally extracted oils with either no fragrance or natural fragrance.
Our honey is raw; direct from the bee keeper, not fired so the enzymes are still 'living' and the taste is awesomely natural! And you can afford it and pay a lot less for buying only a few extra kilos and bringing your own container!
Other products we sell are what we know from experience and tried and tested, are truly the best quality and value you can buy for natural and organic products! We don't do gimmicky fad products.
Sourcing products from distributors is easy! Building authentic direct supply chains is not. It is a massive job to both source and sort out logistics of getting fresh product to members, consistently. Our range is growing as our own farmers ramp up especially for Your Organic Markets so we can make our offer as much as possible a one-stop-shop of affordable organics. Currently we can only do fresh produce delivery to Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Ipswich regions for MEMBERS. We deliver to your door Tuesdays - Fridays. We are expanding to include other areas by demand. And we don't mind doing delivery other days really.
