Sasha from Sun and Seed, growing organic plants and seeds with real passion

Sasha and his family produce cold-pressed pumpkin seed and sunflower seed oils, employing traditional, old fashioned methods and aiming for the best.

The result is very different from the cheap refined oils that one could find in supermarkets.

“Our farm is almost completely self-sufficient. We make considerable effort to keep our environmental impact positive in all aspects of our production.

It is not only about producing organic seeds. We always use recycled glass for Sun and Seed jars and bottles, never transport our products using airfreight; and all of our agricultural waste is either composted or used to generate power for our workshop.

We believe that neither our customer nor the environment requires anything unnatural, so we crafts our products using traditional techniques and artisan imagination.”

Sasha grows Sun and Seeds plants in Vojvodina (northern Serbia), where the land is very fertile and there is no heavy industry – therefore no pollution.

As the business grew, the family teamed up with other farmers in the area who were as passionate about great organic food.

They began to work together to grow more types of organic food and market them through the Sun & Seed collective.

Today they are able to produce a comprehensive range of our award-winning products.

The quality is high, the taste is great and they are organic and healthy!

Don’t stop eating vegetables and fruit, there is so much more to them!

BBC News article by Clare Murphy “Five-a-day has little impact on cancer” states that “eating more fruit and vegetables has only a modest effect on protecting against cancer”.

This new discovery may sound a bit depressing, but it is not a good reason to stop eating tasty vegetables and fruit!

Good food is not a magic potion, but experts stress that eating fruit and vegetables is still the key to good health.

For example, fresh and preserved tomatoes contain powerful antioxidants that have age-fighting properties and protect our cells from damage. (Harvard University – antioxidant: lycopene).

In addition, good food can change our day and help us to feel better: that is already a step towards a healthier life!

A foodie perspective? When in doubt, just follow your nose!

Go for something tasty and healthy like organic cheese and tomato chutney and treat yourself!

Food is great, life is beautiful!
