We run our market garden using organic, bio-intensive, low-till principles. We take a 3-layered approach to garden nutrition:
- Annual soil testing and mineral supplementation to create a minerally balanced soil.
- Feeding our soil every bed-switch with biochar, home-made compost, green manure residues, and/or worm castings.
- Feeding our plants with organic fertilisers, and compost teas as required..
The result is nutrient dense, vibrant food which tastes amazing and delivers a health boost.
All of our products are packaged in reusable containers or home-compostable packaging. If you don't have your own compost you can return it to us, and we will compost it for you. And we encourage you to return any rubber bands to us so we can reuse them.
Where to get our produce
This year we are changing things up and trying a different approach to get our food to the people.
Our greens, herbs, micro-greens, carrots and spring onions will be available in our favourite local stores:
Soul Food Organic Queenstown
Instead of running our subscription veggie box club this season, we are bringing the club veggies in store. We will be commandeering a portion of the fridge at Organic Wholefoods, which we will restock twice a week (Monday and Thursday). This is where you will find the greatest range of our veggies at the best price. You can still join our veggie club and we will keep you in the loop if we have any surpluses to share out, or changes to our sales outlets, as well as sharing seasonal recipe ideas and other garden/kitchen inspiration. To join the club, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also enjoy our veggies when dining out at Wanaka's finest restaurants: Kika, Arc, Paloma and Muttonbird.. We are excited to have our produce elevated into a culinary experience, by the talented chefs at these restaurants.
