About Us

Facts about Ocean Organics:

  • We are family owned and operated
  • We started in 1996 - that means we're 20 years old this year
  • Jill Bradley and Keith Atwood are owners and co-directors

Years ago, husband and wife, Jill Bradley and Keith Atwood went on a woofers holiday around organic farms of New Zealand. They discovered the true, rich tastes of organic fruit and veges and committed to growing organically for their family. Jill and Keith were educated on the inherent dangers of chemical cocktails applied to soil and plants.

An organic farm in the Hawkes Bay impressed them with the health, abundance and lack of disease in the organics.  The major inputs were seaweed and comfrey... So began a number of years of research. Keith experimented with brewing and Jill experimented with organic growing.

Gardening friends soon began asking Jill and Keith to supply them. Ocean Organics was formed to provide organic alternatives for urban gardens.
