A Final Flash of Vibrancy

10th May 2018

Hi there

Otago Farmer's Market-42.jpg

In Dunedin we are blessed by a city that at this time of year show such a beautiful range of Autumnal colours across the city; every thoroughfare, park, campus and avenue is littered with shades of gold, scarlett, burgundy and orange. I would recommend taking a look at the video Dunedin NZ posted the other day, a real feast for the eyes, https://www.facebook.com/DunedinNZ/videos/10156052500915090/

It's a must this week to get in to the Autumnal style and at the market this weekend pick up some seasonal treats, Pumpkin, Parsnip, Brussel Sprouts, Pears, Quines, Apples and so many nuts!

Can't wait to see yall there.

Ugly Tomatoes.jpg

Looking forward to seeing you at the market this week.

I will have in shell as well as halves and pieces of Franquette Walnuts and also in-shell and pieces of Vina Walnuts.

There will be some of the last Black Krim Tomatoes for early birds

Sorry about last week – but it is great how a few early nights addresses the accumulated sleep loss of many short nights!  I feel great now!

Have a good week,

harvest done.jpg

Done!  This year's harvest is just finished, about a month early thanks to a fabulous summer.  Must say it's been quite nice out there in shorts, rather than the thermals we've worn for the last few harvests.

Did you know?

Keeping a little olive oil on your razor blade prolongs the life of the blade! Up to 6 months some say!

Shout out to all the Mum's out there! 

Mothers Day Promo - 1 litre Kombucha

In celebration of our awesome Mums, we are running a Mother's Day Promo on all of our 1-litre Kombuchas this week. Check inside your cap for a one-in-four chance to win a 300ml Kombucha. Winners have a little heart stamped inside.

Gift Baskets

We also have a limited number of flax kete woven by artist Lesa Hepburn available with the purchase of Kombucha for Mother’s day. They each fit 3 x 300ml Kombucha to make a perfect gift basket for Mum.

Market Special

Our market special was also crafted with Mum in mind...Crabapple, Cardamom & Rose. I used Cherry Crabapples from Earnscleugh Orchards to make this sweet, tart treat, with rose floral notes.
