We are here for you all year around

6th September 2018

Hi there

Crowd 25.2.17.jpg

One of the greatest parts of the Otago Farmers Market is it Permanence.

Sun, rain, or wind the market is there every weekend waiting for the loyal legion of customers to arrive. its a unique thing we have here in Dunedin especially when you consider that there is a good portion of the year plants are not entirely keen on the idea of growing.

So, as you may be feeling the temperature rise and the sun shine for longer, don't forget that all the plants are feeling pretty similar and we will have to wait a bit longer before the produce starts to shake up at the market.  

Thank you,

See all your lovely faces at the market!



This Week in the kitchen

For all of you have been tiring of the same old fare on your antipasto platter then this delightful idea for aCarrot & baby spinach terrine that Kate has come up with this week will surely delight! One of the best bonuses of our wonderful farmers market having a market kitchen is we all get the benefit of a great selection of different ideas. Ideas that we may never have come up with on our own to use all the delightful fresh produce at the market all the way through the year.

Holy Cow

Yoghurt small.JPG

Back due to popular demand is our 500ml size yoghurt. Another small packaging change is that we have new labels for yoghurt. The labels are similar to the milk tags. We find these much less fiddly than the stickers.  

We also have flavoured yoghurt. This week the flavours are Karaka blackberries and ever popular Maple syrup. Last week the apricot yoghurt drink was a hit, so there will be more of those, too. We're testing different fruit and sizes so let us know what you think! 

Milk production at the farm is gradually climbing. We've had 6 calves so far, with a similar number expected during September. Production volume is at about 40% now. If this wonderful spring rain remains it will grow even more. So we will have a good stock of all the basics; especially cream. We sold out last week so we will spin some more through the separator for  Saturday!

This week we have:

  • Skim Milk
  • Full Fat Milk
  • Cream
  • Yoghurt
  • Flavoured yoghurt
  • Lassi

Dunford Grove


When we get our oil back from the press there's a bit of water and vegetable matter included.  We work very diligently to rack-off these contaminants as they have a very negative impact on our oil quality.  So, how gratifying it is when we're bottling  to find zero sediment in the fusti when we're done!

Did you know?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil may be better than Viagara at helping men perform in the bedroom, scientists suggest. A study of more than 600 men found that those who consumed plenty of it had far fewer problems with their sexual performance. Researchers said a diet rich in extra virgin olive oil keeps blood vessels healthy - maintaining circulation in every part of the body. Those who consumed at least nine tablespoons of it weekly were far less likely to suffer from impotence than those who ate less of it, and had significantly higher levels of testosterone.
