Jean, Laclan and Adrian Tiller with the Best Organic Retailer of the Year Award.
Sherwood Rd Organic Meats is still celebrating their win – Best Organic Retailer 2018 at the Australian Certified Organics Awards in Adelaide last month! One of our regular long-term Organic Farmers Market stallholders, Jean Tiller, said “We wear our “Bud Logo” with pride these days more than ever”.
Market Co-ordinator, Camilla Tulley, interviewed Jean recently:
1) What time are you up on a Sunday?
Our van is loaded Saturday, so 4am – probably considered a sleep-in to others.
2) What’s your fav stall?
COFFEE or any stall that sells caffeine.
3) Favourite market snacks?
Apples from our wonderful neighbour, Di! @charlwoodorganic
4) How many hours do you work a week?
I help out my sister, Amy who co-owns the shop with our dad – Adrian – the Farmer! I alternate with the lovely Lisa – who many would know as the Duck Farmer! I work in disability services during the week.
5) Best thing about Northey Street Organic Farmers Markets?
We have been at Northey Street since 2012 – before we even owned a butcher shop. At the time we sold our Organic Lamb/Hogget/Mutton/Goat delivered direct to doors. So, the best thing for sure is getting to know our amazing CUSTOMERS! We are so lucky to have the nicest, most appreciative shoppers to share a laugh with every Sunday! Also, I get to bring my son Lachy who absolutely loves helping out!
6) Why Organics?
My family (who produce our meats) wouldn’t have it any other way! Dad (Adrian) reacts badly to chemicals and, contrary to what he was taught at Ag College, believes them to be completely unnecessary. Our farm has been Certified Organic for many years – we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Thank you and Congratulations Jean, Lachlan and Adrian – and rest of The Tiller Family
