About Us

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.
