Biofarms Tasmania is an Organic cropping farm located in the peaceful town of Forth, in northern Tasmania. The main BioFarms property is perched on a hill close to the ocean and near the pristine waters of the Forth river, taking advantage of the clean air and perfect cool climate growing conditions in Tasmania.
The farms are a real family affair and an investment for future generations. Three brothers, Chris, Mark and David Benson, run the operation with the help of their wives and their 15 children who love to help on the farm. The Benson’s use traditional organic methods of farming combined with the latest technology that assists them with planting, harvesting, irrigating, washing and packing.
The Benson’s properties create local employment to assist with hand weeding the crops. Together with the latest technology and a family commitment to organic farming, this enables them to grow commercial quantities of fantastic tasting, organically grown produce in the fertile, nutrient rich soils of Tasmania giving a premium quality product based on both on taste and nutritional value.
