I always find Susan Parsons' articles in the Canberra Times interesting, as they provide an insight into sustainable food production in Canberra and region.

In this week's Canberra Times Food and Wine supplement (22 June 2016), she profiles the BurraBee farm in Burra, run by Andrew and Vikki Jones.

As the farm consists largely of Yellow Box woodland, the couple sells raw honey from the hives.

They also grow vegetables using regenerative practices and no chemicals. Their bio-intensive market gardening method is achieved by composting, deep soil preparation, synergistic planting and close plant spacing and use of heirloom seeds.

They are starting their first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Harvest Hampers, a scheme under which they provide members with a share of their harvest.
