Welcome back & Happy New Year!

Welcome back and Happy New Year!

Well we’ve certainly had some nice summer weather to start the year off and now the rain is most welcome. Our plan was to get back into gear for the deliveries yesterday, computer work etc but with the power off we had a lovely quiet relaxing day. And the day before that was Des’s birthday which of course entailed catching up with family etc. We’ve had a nice break just pottering around and generally enjoying ourselves. I trust you also have been able to take the time to do some things you’ve wanted to do for yourselves over this time too.

And now we are back into it, realising that we really enjoy what we do but also more aware that we need to delegate some of the workload to some extra helping hands where necessary. Pre-Christmas was rather stressful trying to cope with the new website on top of the usual rush required at that time of the year but having had a chance to step back from it now it’s easier to see not everything needs to be done at once and some things can just wait. We’re aiming for a special year with lots of goodies and plenty of happy well fed customers!

This week new seasons buttercup starts – green skin and yellow/orange flesh and the best pumpkin type around! We also have new seasons rocket potatoes, plenty of carrots, juicing and table, new seasons beetroot, NZ garlic and also some small round green beans. More cherries, peaches, plums and blueberries – yum! Strawberries are almost finished but we will have plenty of frozen ones available later. Just ask if you want them earlier. Avocadoes are in very short supply and we only have a very few this week, could be short until the end of the month actually.
With increased supply prices on some products are now easing – this is the best time of the year for prices to reduce as we move into great growing weather and main crop production. Tomatoes are cheaper, greens like silverbeet also, plus blueberries, cherries, beans, potatoes and carrots; even kumara has eased a little. Other crops like beetroot and buttercups will ease as production increases later.

Strawberries for Christmas and PYO

Strawberries available Saturday 9am-1pm at the farm – $10kg ungraded

Here’s your opportunity to get fresh organic strawberries for Christmas at an amazing price of just $10kg.

Our farm shop will be open on Saturday 23rd December from 9am-1pm with lots of freshly picked strawberries available. Please note no other produce will be available – except maybe plums.
These strawberries will be as they come straight from the field so there will be the odd second amongst them but mostly they will be top quality berries.

Pick Your Own Friday 8am – 12 Noon – $10kg

Plus if you want to pick your own strawberries come Friday 22nd December 8am to 12pm. Strawberries will be the same price at $10kg but you can eat as much as you like as well.

 

Farm location – 153 Ararimu Valley Rd, Waimauku – Ph 4118466

We may also be open between Christmas and New Year for pick your own on Friday 29th December 8am – 12pm. Will confirm this later.
