About Us

We are delivering through the Alert level 4 phase, but things will look a little different and we hope you'll accomodate this. We won't have enough of the beautiful wooden boxes from Cargills Enterprises, so your fruit and veg may arrive in a cardboard box. We won't have access to quite as many suppliers so the range may be a little smaller. I'm thinking you'll be at home so slow food is more of an option, so there will be ingredients for slow soups and curries... 

Locavore Boxes provide fresh ingredients from Otago’s local producers and suppliers - some of it from our place and some is grown elsewhere. We’ll compile a box of what’s seasonal and tasty, and we’ll include recipes and ideas - unless you’re feeling creative and don’t want them. We’ll cater for your special dietary requirements and even food preferences.

Locavore Boxes arrive at your door in a wooden box and recyclable packing (glass jars, paper bags) which we will pick up and take away the next time we visit. We also make the most of fresh fruit and veg in season with tasty preserves, relishes, fruit cordials and sauces. This means we can all enjoy those flavours right through the year.

Our big garden is on West Harbour, at Hamilton Bay. We have young fruit and nut trees, hens, ducks, terraces of vegetables, a couple of dogs... It’s all a bit chaotic frankly.
