Working towards a more compassionate world through education and advocacy

The outlets for kinder food which appear on our site may advocate that they sell meat and produce from animals which have been humanely reared. Unfortunately, CIWF South Africa is not able to audit all the outlets and therefore suggests that you ensure the validity of these claims, prior to purchasing. Kindly notify us immediately if you have any concerns in this respect.

For conscientised consumers: All you every wanted to know about what to eat – or what not to eat… and more!!!

 

Can’t remember just what’s so bad about eating shrimp? Concerned about consuming the least environmentally ruinous things possible but can’t keep it all straight? Not sure what that “organic” label really means?

 

A guide to what’s morally squishy about so much of our food supply — and practical tips about how to make more informed, socially conscious choices about what you put in your mouth.

Inspired by Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms in Virginia, USA, on our farm outside Stellenbosch, South Africa, we apply biodynamic agricultural principles and practices in raising cattle, laying hens, vegetables and vines.

 

The 114 hectares of irrigated pasture form the foundation on which our operation rests. We plant a diversity of perennial summer and winter legumes, herbs and grasses each of which brings different nutrition to the animals eating them as well as beneficial relationships with the soil microbes.
