Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and potassium.

The plant pigment that gives beetroot its rich, purple-crimson colour is betacyanin; a powerful agent, thought to help surpress the development of damaged cells linking to cancer.

Try juicing your beetroot - it provides beautiful earthy flavour.

Farmer: Busch Organics Farm

Busch Organics is a family run Australian Certified Organic farm on the Mitchell River Flats at Hillside, 13km west of Bairnsdale. Their produce includes a variety of seasonal vegetables and lucerne. At Busch Organics we believe in sustainable farming practices and offering the highest level of quality.

For generations Busch Organics have considered their soil to be the lifeblood of a successful farming operation. Situated on the rich river flats in East Gippsland, the soil is highly regarded as some of the best in the country. Plant health begins with soil carrying microbes and bacteria alike. Every opportunity is taken to improve soil structure, which sees green manure crops grown to be returned to the medium loam soil every autumn. By returning important nutrients to the soil we replace those which were removed during the growing season. Worms are always a good indication of soil health, and a stroll down the paddock with a shovel will unearth an abundance of life beneath.
