Organic Poultry, Fruits and Vegetables

On a tropical island, there is nothing better than eating fresh tropical fruit and vegetables, rich in taste and color. In the regency of Tabanan, there is a small organic farm Bali Sehat, producing some of the best examples of healthy food—from cacao to coconut. They also produce papaya, banana, lemon, mangosteen, rambutan…

All that utilizing permaculture techniques. They also produce organic free range chickens. Meaning their chickens are not in the cages, but running freely around garden laying eggs and eating organic food, not processed supplements.

Bali Pocket 002 - January 2016_page41_image53The mission of Bali Sehat Organic Farmer Market is to promote foods that are produced sustainably in Bali, using organic farming methods that are good for the island and following the traditional ‘Tri Hita Karana’ philosophy for life on the island of Bali. That means the “three causes of well-being” or “three reasons for prosperity.”

Balinese people believe that there should be harmony with nature and environment, harmony with God and harmony among people.

That is why it is of crucial importance that nature should be conserved while promoting the sustainability and balance of the environment. Sustainable farming always tries to minimize erosion and wastage and understand ecosystem services. Based on this concept the Balinese treated the environment well, and they believe that the good environment will make their life better. For example on the Tumpek Uduh based on the Balinese calendar, the Balinese give the offering to the tree for tree to give them prosperity and strength to keep the harmony and balance with the environment.

In Bali Sehat, they live and produce by tradition, and that is why their food is always clean and fresh. You can try it in Kerobokan, Banjar Semer, where Bali Sehat has the shop with its products.
