As a Nutritionist and Osteopath, I highly applaud the work that organic empire are doing to create a healthier Yarra Valley and getting organic foods to the local community in a real cost-effective way.  When I first started my health journey, I was hoping that the food served up in commercially driven places was adequate for good health, but research, as well as our declining nation’s health are key indicators that organic is best.  And by the way, spending a little more on good food and appropriate supplements, will save you a lot of money on medical bills in the future.

Please check out their website and eat organic and get the most nutrition from your fruit and vegies.  We do – because we want the BEST health.
