Geoff, Cecil Plains, Qld – クイーンズランド州セシルプレインズのジェフさん

ジェフさんは元々、スペシャルティ有機穀物に高値が付くのを見たことがきっかけで、有機農法を始めたといいます。通常農法では作物に大量の化学薬品を使用しなければならないことにも懸念を抱いてもいました。

ジェフさんは、土壌の健康状態を改善するため、肥料に堆肥を使用。異なる種類の堆肥で実験を行い、結果を比較した経験から、堆肥こそがより良い作物を栽培する秘けつであると結論付けました。オーストラリア国内の有機食品の今後の動向について高い関心を抱くとともに、他の農家も有機認定を受けることができるよう協力し、働き掛けることを喜びとしています。

食品に含まれる化学薬品の健康への影響について知っているからこそ、有機農法は「社会に対する善行」の一種であると考えているとのこと。

現在、ジェフさんはキアラ向けに、紫小麦、とうもろこし、ポップコーン、ヒヨコ豆など、さまざまな作物を栽培。ジェフさんの家族は、1945年以来、この地区で農業を営んできました。

    I never make a bad loaf of bread now, since changing over to Kialla flour… I can’t get over the superior quality of your product. I have bought some for everyone in my family.

    We’ve found that Kialla popcorn is the best – it pops so much better than other popcorns, and it tastes great. Our kids love it.

    I truly like the transparency and traceability that Kialla Pure Foods offers. I’m actually able to see which farm grew the wheat milled into my 10kg bag of flour. This really sealed the deal for me. And I feel that Kialla sets themselves apart in this sense.

    We’ve tried several other pancake mixes but nothing comes close to yours!

  • Lisa, owner & baker at Sweet Tooth Noosa

    Of all the brands of flour I have used Kialla is by far the BEST!

  • Meredith J. Home Baker

    Kialla is the best flour I’ve ever used – and that includes some great US flours. Please keep milling forever!!

  • Jacqui Mead, Consumer

    We’ve been using Kialla’s products for approximately seven years now, making the change to Organic Spelt Flour following the discovery that my son had a wheat and dairy intolerance. I have found that our whole family’s health has improved.
