Hemp and honey: The perfect superfood snack for your family - By Terry memory

Hemp and honey: The perfect superfood snack for your family - By Terry memory

Many of the snack foods available today on supermarket shelves - including those which are marketed as healthy choices for growing kids - are packed with refined sugars, loaded with unhealthy fats, and contain a suite of artificial ingredients with names that are hard to pronounce, let alone identify. We all want to offer our families snacks we can feel good about, but it's not easy to find options with the right balance of taste, nutrition, and convenience - and the exaggerated claims on supermarket packaging don't help. If you're seeking a simple way to add sweet, healthy treats into your family's diet, take a moment to consider the benefits and uses of hemp-infused honey.

Does your skin get dry and itchy in the cooler months?

There are lots of things we love about winter in Tasmania, but icy winds on chilly mornings is not one of them! Even though the daylight hours are beginning to get longer having just passed the winter solstice, there is still a while to go before the temperature begins to climb and harsh outside conditions subside. Do you find that when the wind blows your skin gets irritated? You are not alone! Research has shown that many different types of people report experiencing dry skin, and this is particularly so in the cooler months.

The Irratating Truth about Sodium Laurel Sulphate - By Tony De Souza

The Irratating Truth about Sodium Laurel Sulphate - By Tony De Souza

How many chemicals do you put on, or in your body on a daily basis? How many of those are natural? How do we even know? And as long as they work, should we even care? Well what if I told you that one of the most common chemical additives found in products that many of us regularly apply to our bodies is synthesised using sulphuric acid, and has been linked to a variety of health concerns such as … - I bet you’re starting to care now.

The answer to the first question I posed is staggering: on average both men and women are, often without realising, adding upwards of 200 chemicals to our bodies every single day. Seems like a lot, but if you’re like me, you don’t really take much notice of the long ingredient lists on the back of our healthcare or skincare products.

Hemp Oil - The Omega Solution - By Tony De Souza

Hemp Oil - The Omega Solution - By Tony De Souza

It also offers several other health benefits such as alleviating symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, being a good source of antioxidants, and has been shown to have anti-carcinogenic properties. On top of that, production is far and away much more sustainable than fish and other sources of EFAs. Hemp seeds are also a much more accessible source, being suitable for people of all dietary requirements and choices. Circling back to the first issue raised around fish oil, the taste of hemp oil is actually very pleasant – its subtle nuttiness making it easy to consume as is or as a raw ingredient in food. So, what are you waiting for? Check out our range of hemp food and skincare products here.

Hemp Vs Marijuanna - By Terry Memory

Hemp Vs Marijuanna - By Terry Memory

Can you Smoke it?

This is invariably the first question I get when people find out we have a Hemp farm. It’s asked in a fun way but it does signal the huge lack of information and awareness about what exactly Industrial Hemp is. Now this confusion begins with the fact that Industrial Hemp and Cannabis/ Marijuana possess only one real differentiating factor and that is the presence of or lack thereof of Tetrahydrocannabinoids or THC for short.

This is the ‘psycho-active’ substance in Marijuana that gets you high or stoned or whatever you want to call it. In hydroponically grown marijuana typical THC levels will be over 20%, with some as high as 35%.

Hemp Rissotto Anyone? - By Terry Memory

Hemp Rissotto Anyone? - By Terry Memory

I had the pleasure of sitting in on a profound discussion on Nutrition (more apt description would be Human Nourishment) by renowned alternative Physician Lakshmi Prasanna. As she moved through her presentation she constantly painted ‘the big picture’ of our human interaction with food and the far larger implication it has in relation to our ‘human’ and ‘spiritual’ health.

Her insights embraced the smaller and larger worlds of consciousness and what it truly means to be connected in both an inner and an outer sense. What I really liked most about her discussion was her ability to elucidate the deeper teachings of Rudolf Steiner, and in this case his lectures of human nutrition and make it digestible (pun intended) for the real world today.

Hemp - The Tie That Binds - By Terry Memory

Hemp - The Tie That Binds - By Terry Memory

I remember the deflated feeling that hit me after the local Organic Certification agent came to visit our farm back in 2009. After finally moving into our new found rundown and rustic paradise our unbridled enthusiasm literally runeth over. All the plans and ideas that had been excitedly hatched during our suburban dinner parties, from perfected chook shed designs, hot water composting systems to even growing our own fish! They all now finally had a chance to come to life. Everything was an opportunity and the biggest issue we faced was simply how to schedule which environmentally conscious, soul fulfilling task would get priority over the many others.
