LOCAL FOOD LEADERS
CSM Organics is a family run business that Vicki and Rowan and their children work and run as a team. A couple of decades ago, Rowan and Vicki were farming conventionally, trying to produce as much milk as possible and pushing their herds to the limit.
Vicki admits that they have ‘always been really uncomfortable with using chemicals on their food’, and decided to shift to organic production and start trailing different distribution methods that would place them in direct contact with their customers.
CSM Organics’ cattle are grass-fed (not grain), antibiotic free and a driving force behind their business model is to make organic, local produce accessible and affordable.
Vicki and Rowan have created an incredible farm business that the next generation is now stepping up to take over. The family are also working with Pakenham Secondary College to create a community farm school on their farmland at Cockatoo.
