We do grow a lot of random things at our place - they seem to be our speciality! At the moment we have myoga ginger and kiwi berries flourishing. The birds are finishing off the elderberries - we have sacks of them in the freezer, as well as a LOT of cordials and other things on the shelf.
But there are many people better at growing than us, we're happy to acknowledge that and call on their skills...
In these challenging times we're having to do things a bit differently, so we're sorting out systems to get produce from growers in a way that minimises or eliminates risk of transmission of COVID-19.
It looks like we will have great vegetables from Janefield Paeonies and Hydroponics, Vern Paddock Project and from Oamaru Organics. There is still fruit coming from Hobbs family Partnership, and we are hoping to add a few more growers to this list as well.
The Vern Paddock Project is just up the hill from us, and they grow Microgreens, sprouts and other leafy greens - thanks guys! Vern Paddock Project is part of Mihiwaka Organics, and they also create herbal teas.
Roastery Door is a small coffee roastery in South Dunedin. They supply coffee for the boxes, sourcing PNG fair trade and organic coffee, fair trade coffee from Colombia, and Brazilian beans as well.
We have a local beekeeper who provides honey in glass jars for us - clover/wildflower blend, and a wildflower and Manuka honey too. We've had our first delivery of the bush honey (600ml in a compostable cardboard tub), and it is super tasty!... thanks B L Beekeeping!
