Properly Organic Tasmania

Properly Organic PL is a provider of beyond organic seasonal and local food.

Our Micro-greens, Edible Flowers and Mushrooms are beyond organic in quality. They can change a simple meal to a gourmet experience

All of Tasmania is our back yard but the northern section is where it is at at the moment.
We service food outlets like restaurants, clubs and cafes as well as providing public access to highly nutritious and very tasty food.

Focused on  research and education in the rural sector, we are developing new and intensive systems to grow food in a Properly Organic way.

Our driving factors are:

  • economic sustainability
  • environmental sustainability
  • product quality
  • efficiency

Buzzwords aside, all of this good stuff must be paid for, so we start with 2 related micro-enterprises – Mushrooms and Microgreens.

These were chosen as they have a rapid crop cycle time and are high value. Both use grow-houses with attached sheds, so can be installed at the same time and share most of the infrastructure.

Mizuna Microgreens

Microgreens are young plants that  have just grown their first true leaves. At this time, their flavour and nutritional values are way high. Depending upon the variety, they contain 5x to 40x more vitamins and minerals than their adult form.

This makes them an excellent addition to sandwiches, burgers and soups. They also go well as a garnish on meals. A quick addition to a meal makes it instantly gourmet.


Mushrooms are a very healthful and medicinal part of our diet. Among our potential varieties, we have:

  • Enoki
  • King Oyster
  • King Stropharia
  • Lion’s Mane
  • Maitake
  • Oyster – Blue
  • Oyster – Golden
  • Oyster – Gray
  • Oyster – Pearl
  • Oyster – Phoenix
  • Oyster – Pink
  • Oyster – White
  • Reishi
  • Shitake
  • Straw Mushrooms

We start with the more common and simple to grow mushrooms. The others, we grow on demand. Where possible they will be sold as a bloom rather than individual shrooms. In any event, their quality must be high.

We often have spare pasture forage because most of our production is done indoors. This we rent out to local producers to assist them when they have a shortage of feed.

We charge industry standard rates for this service. Our property has good feed and is well watered. The paddocks are well covered with clover and various rye and grass crops.
