Neil's Organics is the only 'all organic food' shop in Cairns..Neil opened his shop in 2002 after having a market stall at Rusty's Markets in Cairns.
In 1988 Neil and his wife Norma bought a farm in Mareeba as a lifestyle choice,they grew their own vegetables and fruit with no chemicals used..they even picked,packed and marketed their products.Organic farming became a milestone for them in 5 years.. after increasing natural minerals to the soil and decreasing chemical fertiliser each year Neil has succeeded and is now helping lots of people have a choice in what they put in their body.
The shop itself has aisles of the most interesting food and other organic products.

What to buy: I love the way Neil has embraced what it is like to live free of chemicals on his farm and how he has successfully established his organic business as the owner grower of his shop.
The honey is fabulous but I loved the organic veges and fruits.

You can spend ages in this shop just looking at and reading about the organic fresh produce and products.

What to pay: A little more expensive than supermarket prices but worth it.
Example...sugar bananas $4.50 kl
