9:07 Country Life 

Country Life joins Bio Gro auditor Vivienne Cruickshank as she visits an organic kiwifruit orchard to see if it's up to scratch. There are yearly audits for Bio Gro's 750 producers, farmers and manufacturers across New Zealand and the Pacific. Vivienne says some people fear taking up organic farming because they think there are limited ways of dealing with farming challenges. She says the 'tool box' is just different.
