Fresh Produce

Check out our selection of veges from the plot below, as well as breads and free range eggs from our local suppliers.

Fresh veges

All of our veges are grown here on our farm in Glentui near Oxford in North Canterbury. We grow seasonally all year round and have all kinds of veges. We are always experimenting with new varieties to keep things exciting!

Interesting varieties you can look forward to this season, just to name a few:

  • Yellow and purple beans
  • Fennel Bulb
  • Edible flowers
  • New potatoes
  • Chilli varieties
  • All the colours of the rainbow tomatoes (we even have a green variety!)

All veges are grown completely free of any commercial sprays such as fungicides and pesticides and as organically as possible. We still use natural and organically certified remedies on our plants, (such as baking soda or milk to prevent powdery mildew on leaves) and compost teas. The reason we haven’t yet called ourselves “Organic”, is purely because some of the inputs we use such as large amounts of hay we were fortunate enough to be gifted, come from conventional farms who aren’t organic. As we progress, we will endeavour to find a more encompassing description!

Free range eggs

Our eggs are supplied to us by Rhys and Tanya from Freedom Free Range Eggs. Rhys is another local farmer and has a small number of chickens located just outside of Oxford, bringing you eggs that pretty much come straight from the chicken’s nest into your vege bag!
