A & E Brink Gilgie Organic Produce
|Name:||Aard and Eve Brink|
110, Gilgie Road
|Location:||Lowlands, Albany WA 6330|
Description After moving to their farm with their two boys in 1995 and trying their hand at a few different crops including New Mexican type chillies, Aard and Eve Brink obtained Organic Certification in 1998 to fill a niche in organic chilli products. To achieve a healthy and tasty crop, it soon became clear that soil fertility was the key to success and since 1998, a soil testing and maintenance program has been in place following the Albrecht method of soil mineral balancing. In 1999, their emphasis turned to growing stringless beans, mainly for the Perth market, and since they started trading at the Albany Farmers Market, their little home garden has evolved into a true organic market garden with a small winter range of vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and leeks, and a growing summer range including chillies, beans, beetroot, lettuces, zucchinis, cucumbers, rocket, parsley, basil, eggplant, capsicum and tomatoes (also used in their "Clearly Organic" pasta sauce). Fruits are Apples, Pears, Plums, Oranges & Mandarins
Sadly we have made the hard decision to withdraw from horticulture and the market.
We have had a fabulous 16½ years trading in the market and have valued your friendship over that time.
Many thanks for all your support.
Look forward to seeing you in the market as customers in the future!!

King River Avocados & Persimmons
|Name:||Simon and Sue Keast|
|Location:||Near Albany |
Description King River Avocados is one of the first avocado orchards established in the Albany region. Located in the Millbrook Valley, 18 km. from Albany, the trees grow on heavy red river loam soils. Simon and Sue Keast, having completed variety research, now concentrate on late varieties – Reed and Hass. The climate of cool long-growing conditions with harvest in late summer allows these avocados to develop dense and strongly flavoured flesh. The growers strive for good quality, unblemished fruit using a system of insecticide-free production. The orchard is small – approx 150 trees ranging from 30-year-old trees to recent plantings in 2004. The Albany Farmers Market has become the sole source of direct sale for King River Avocados.

Piacun Honey and Olive Oil, Eggs
|Name:||Steve & Anne Piacun|
Description Steve and Ann are a husband and wife team who started their honey business in 1997. After the downturn in the wool and sheep industries, they decided to diversify into honey production, olives and free-range eggs. They have a property at Boxwood Hill (103km. east of Albany), and a small property 12km. west of Albany. At Boxwood Hill, they have a substantial amount of virgin bush, which enables them to produce honey of the highest possible quality. The ranges of floral sources are mallee, eucalyptus and yate in the east, and jarrah, marri, karri and taylorina, closer to Albany. All the honey they market is sourced entirely from their own production. Their honey is not blended and is handled as little as possible. What the bees put in the hives is what ends up in the jar!
