AGRICULTURE Questions:

1. Do you have your own farm or just deliver vegetables from some market?

We do have our own farm located in Baturiti, Tabanan and all of the western produce are in-farm production but some other local vegetables we get it from the neighboring farmers. In the coming future we would also works with community plasma farmers especially for wholesale clients like hotel and restaurant.

2. Roughly how much percentage of your vegetables are grown by organic?

We use 100% organic system in our farm but to be called organic we need another three components to be organic : Water, land, and seed source. We do have organic water but during the dry season some treated tap water is being use to water the plants maybe around 30%. Our land is completely organic since its being use for organic production for over than 8 years (depends on the standard usually 3-6 years from the previous conventional system to get the soil conditioned). Organic seeds means that the seed source came from the organically grown bred mother plant which not available in Indonesia especially for western crops. We do have some organic seeds like Kale and Carrots, the rest are conventional seed but we dont use fungicide treated seeds. For the seed source wise we would say about 40%. So in total maybe around 77.5% to 80 %.

3. How about the organic certification?

Unfortunately organic certification in Indonesia is not feasible for annual fresh produce and with IFOAM and USDA adapted organic policy, its very hard to get organic land here. If someone does, means that they open a land far away up in the mountain and will be very costly due the logistics issue and especially in Bali where agriculture land is fighting with national parks and water/soil preserved land. Regards of many organic certification institute, 70% is the minimum of organic produce to be called 'organic'

4. Can we inspect your farm in near future?

Yes we would be delighted to have client visitors to see how we cultivate our vegetables. Please come during weekdays, our manager would welcome you around 7.30 AM to 3 PM and let us know one day in advance.

Unfortunately not. We provide information with pictures and other details in our website so please make sure that you are ordering the right goods for you.

PRODUCT ISSUES

1. Is your produce washed or should i wash it again?

We washed our produce with conditioned tap water, especially the raw greens like salads and herbs. But we suggest you to wash it with drinking water quality before consumption .

2. Could we make a customize standard for our yields?

Yes, if you are a wholesale restaurant who demand on specific condition of the yields with terms and condition applied. Please contact our administrator for this io.gm@bigtreefarms.com

3. How long your produce will last in the fridge?

Varies depends on the produce itself. Herbs which has strong scent are preferably kept in separated container because they release etilen hormones and will make your other produce get withered faster, as well as fruits like apples and oranges. We would not suggest you to keep the fresh produce more than three days in the fridge especially the raw material because there are some harmful bacteria spores in every mm3 flying around in the tropic climates like Bali. Cooking vegetables could last up to 5 - days.
