Terra Madre joins PGS Bryanston Market

PGS

The PGS system was created by IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) to support and develop emerging and micro producers who are committed to producing organic foods, but find the cost of certification by an independent third party certifier beyond the means of their operation.
Participatory Guarantee Systems, just like third-party certification systems, aim to provide a credible guarantee for consumers seeking organic produce. The difference is in approach: the assessment includes participation of farmers, consumers and other stakeholders in the verification process, a sharing of skills and knowledge and ultimately on going community monitoring.
Such involvement is realistic and achievable given that PGS is likely to serve small farms and local direct markets. Costs of participation are low and mostly take the form of voluntary time involvement rather than financial expenses.
The Bryanston Organic & Natural market has an established PGS network ensuring that the integrity and quality of the food supplied in the market is maintained in accordance with PGS standards.

Certified organic pomegranates

We are a family run Organic Farm in the heart of Muldersdrift. Our names are Laiken and Jason Cullen. We are not your typical farmers. Laiken is a qualified school teacher, with a background in publication editing and Jason is a 3D animation director having done work for the TV commercial industry. Hence it is our backgrounds and drive for excellence that make us such unconventional farmers. Using our organisational and marketing skills, with a passion for learning, we started our boutique organic farm. After experiencing how difficult it was to obtain organically grown produce, and when we discovered the well documented health benefits of pomegranates, we decided to turn some fallow land into a farm, supplying the market not with just another fruit, but a Superfruit – organically grown Pomegranates.
We are Certified Organic by EcoCert with the European standard of Organic practices. We maintain the highest standards to ensure we receive our certificate on time, annually. Our soil, water and leaves are regularly tested and our soil organically fed to ensure our trees are well looked after and the fruit is of the highest quality – nourishing as nature intended.
We run our farm on biodynamic principles. We have chickens for pest control and manure, fish in our dam that enhances our water which in turn feeds our Pomegranate trees, a “bat hotel” for our local bats and last but not least we have 4 beehives just for our Pomegranate blossoms.
Consumers are becoming more aware of their health and eating correctly. There is a definite swing toward the organic market. Here At Ganico Boutique Farm we pride ourselves on being locally sustainable and farming on a small scale, which enables us to nurture the trees individually, supplying the best possible Organic Pomegranates.
