Landtasia Organic Farms & Sanctuary is a 10,500 acre certified organic mixed agricultural farm located in the southern tablelands of NSW. Renowned for our beautiful certified organic beef we also grow heritage apples and grains.
We grow Angus cross beef cattle and provide our organic beef to local organic butchers for their retail and trade customers. We also support individuals or groups to purchase a whole carcass and make arrangements with their local butcher to cut and pack it for them.
The farm is regularly audited by the independent certification organisation, Biological Farmers of Australia.
Here is where you can download laboratory test results for each batch of our lovely compost. Match the batch number of your compost with the batch numbers below.
Each batch of Landtasia Compost is tested for compliance with the AS4454 2012 Australian Compost Standard
The AS4454 test includes screening for pesticides and heavy metal residues.
These tests are completed by Environmental Analysis Laboratories (EAL) in Lismore.
We also send batch samples to SWEP Laboratories in Victoria for a full compost analysis. The compost analysis provides everything you need to know about available and total nutrients, Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) and cation balance.
From time to time we include a microbial balance test to see how things are tracking with the maturation and humus formation process. Bear in mind the microbial balance is DYNAMIC and will change as the compost matures. Our compost is alive!
Solvita Ammonia and CO2 respiration tests are used to confirm batches have shifted from active to mature. These tests are completed in house.
