Rob, Dalby, Qld – クイーンズランド州ダルビーのロブさん

May 3, 2015

約10年前に綿栽培から有機栽培にくら替えしたロブさん。両親の営む農場で、仕事を手伝いながら育ったといいます。現在、コンダマイン川近くの約200ヘクタールの農地をシェアファーマーとともに所有。キアラ向けに、キビ、小麦、ソルガム、ひよこ豆、カムットなどの作物を栽培しています。

特に関心を寄せているのが、有機農家が利用できそうな新技術の研究。新たな手法により、化学肥料や、雑草を駆除するための化学薬品の散布といった従来の農業手法が不要になるといいます。

ロブさんによると、多くの農家が何年もの間、農薬を散布してきた結果、除草剤の効かない除草剤抵抗性雑草が出現しているとのこと。その結果、多くの農家は最近、より有機的な方法によって雑草駆除や土壌の健康状態を管理しているそうです。

欧州連合や米国など、他の先進国の農家とは異なり、オーストラリアの農家は、農業収入を補うための国家補助金を毎年受給することはできません。ロブさんは、柵張りや収穫の仕事、トラック運転手をして農業収入を補っています。ですから「二足以上のわらじを履く」人だということが言えます。

    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.

    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.
