ORGANIC
FARMING METHODS

We achieve our philosophy by using the organic methods of crop rotation and composting. These methods improve the soil microbes, ensure diversity of the habitat for insects, birds and animals and promote an overall balance between them. As a result crop nutrition is well balanced and this balance provides better nutrition for livestock and humans (that's you!).

Due to the unaffordable costs of organic certification, we are no longer "certified" organic. We will not be changing any of our organic
practices that we have assured our customers of since 1980.

Buying directly from the farm eliminates the need for distance haulage and the associated pollution. Your food dollar goes directly to the food producer when you buy fresh from the farm.

We promote genetic diversity by growing older varieties originally developed for flavour and to suit the organic methods of farming. In growing these varieties we are helping to maintain the genetic pool for future generations.

By choosing an environmentally friendly food supply our customers are supporting a healthy environment and good nutrition.

We would like to thank our valued customers for voting, with your food dollars, for a system with higher values.

Thank You.

Bridgehead Coffees are fairly traded, organic and shade-grown. Bridgehead creates a better deal for small-scale farmers. Small-scale farmers grow much of the world's coffee. But world coffee prices now at a 20 year low mean that farmers are receiving less than the cost of production for their beans. Many farmers have had to walk away from their farms. Other farmers have been forced to clear-cut their land in order to increase crop production. Such intensive production comes at a cost to the environment.

Bridgehead buys directly from small-scale coffee farmers organized in co-operatives and guarantees them a fair price, well above the world market price. Farmers avoid dealing with "coyotes" or local intermediary traders who control the economic activities of local villages and exploit farmers. Higher coffee incomes mean local communities can build schools, health centres and roads. Farmers are also able to grow alternative cash and food crops in addition to coffee.
