At tonemade, food provenance is of the utmost importance and we want you to know exactly where the ingredients in our broths and sauces are sourced. With no preservatives or additives, our broths contain real food products only. All meat and marrow bones are supplied from one of the biggest certified organic beef and lamb producers in Victoria and our certified organic chickens are sourced from Bendele Farm.
It is important to us that the beef and chicken we use are not only farmed organically but also with an ethical philosophy which is why we have carefully selected these suppliers. Vegetables are sourced through Melba Fresh, on organic fresh produce supplier via the Melbourne Markets, and spices and apple cider vinegar through Melbourne-based organic food cooperation, Terra Madre.
Following are the real food certified organic ingredient lists of our broths:
BEEF BONE BROTH: Filtered water, beef and marrow bones, carrot, celery, onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, bay leaves, peppercorns, pink salt, apple cider vinegar
CHICKEN BONE BROTH: Filtered water, chicken bones, carrot, celery, onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, lemongrass, bay leaves, peppercorns, pink salt, apple cider vinegar
Based in Tarwin Lower, South Gippsland Cherry Tree Organics is a producer of certified organic grass fed beef and lamb from family farm 'Cherry Tree Downs'.
Ethically produced, they practice traditional farming methods breeding slow-growing cattle and allowing them to reach maturity naturally. Angus and Hereford cattle are bred on the farm and enjoy a low stress life in a natural environment. Raised on their mother's milk until they naturally wean, the cattle are then fed 100% on fresh organic pasture. Through producing, growing, butchering and delivering their meat and bones to their customers, Cherry Tree Organics look after their animals from 'paddock to plate'.
Fred and Sarah Sterns moved to Bendele Farm in 2004 to commence growing, processing and supplying certified organic poultry.
It was important for Sarah & Fred to create a farm where the land can maintain its fertility whilst producing exceptionally good food for their poultry without the use of synthetic chemicals or fertilisers, therefore maintaining and enhancing the essential elements of organic farming.
"Our farm is dedicated to working with nature not against it, which means our chicken is free from chemical pesticides, growth promotants, herbicides, antibiotics and genetic modifications.”
Bendele Farm is situated east of the small historic town of Kilkivan in the South Burnett region of South East Queensland, approximately 1.5 hours from Noosa.
