Our Apples

Our Apples

Exceptional apple cider vinegar begins with sun-ripened, organically grown apples.

A commitment to organic farming methods has always been a central tenet of the Elgin Organics philosophy. Because we only use (non-certified) organically grown, residue-free apples to make our apple cider vinegar, every bottle is free of harmful chemicals and brimming with natural goodness and incredible flavour.

Why choose organic?

Healthy soil
Organic orchards don’t use synthetic fertilisers, harmful chemicals, or GMOs. Instead, earth-friendly farming methods, like crop rotation and the use of beneficial natural organisms, are used to improve soil health and naturally control pests, weeds, and disease.

Healthy ecosystems
The use of harmful pesticides, insecticides, and fungicides is not permitted in organic orchards. This protects the area’s natural ecosystem of microorganisms, plants, insects, reptiles, birds, and other animals. Balanced, healthy ecosystems are vital to the health of the planet as a whole.

Healthy people
Choosing organic fruit reduces your exposure to harmful toxins. Naturally grown, sun-ripened, and residue-free, organic apples are free of toxic chemicals and packed with nutrients, vitamins, and flavour; just as nature intended.

Rosenhof Farm, Elgin Valley

We source our apples from Rosenhof Farm, a non-certified organic farm in the Elgin Valley. The Rosenhof apple orchards are fed with organic farm-made compost, mulch, and organic fertilisers and soil conditioners. ‘Pests’ and ‘diseases’ are managed naturally through the use of beneficial fungi and bacteria. Herb and flower gardens are planted to attract beneficial insects like bees, ladybugs, and wasps. Snails and slugs are managed with a team of Indian runner ducks.
