Moondarra Blueberries are committed to the principles of organic agriculture by fully utilising organic growing methods. Our farming processes increase levels of organic matter in the soil and minimise energy usage and waste, which all have a positive effect in reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
We are continually looking at ways to improve our production systems to protect and improve biodiversity and ensure sustainability on our farm.
Our aim is to produce the highest quality berries possible. Selling into the wholesale markets in Melbourne, direct to retail stores and to various farmers’ markets around Melbourne, all berries are hand-picked and graded to ensure they are the absolute best.
There are many different varieties of blueberries which fruit at different times of the harvest season. They vary in size, texture and flavour.
Blueberries are nutritious, delicious and a delight to eat. Freshly picked, ripe blueberries taste great on their own or can be included in a variety of dishes.
Not only are blueberries tasty, they have been scientifically proven to be high in antioxidants and rich in Vitamin C and also contain many other valuable nutrients.
All of this goodness packed into this tiny berry has found to be:
• beneficial in reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke
• useful in treating and preventing urinary tract infection
• a protectant against the damaging effects of free radicals
• beneficial in helping treat some cancers
• helpful in reversing the effects of age related deterioration eg. Alzheimer’s.
