Nice to have some sunshine again! We have a solar water pump operating on our family farm and it is so rare for the water tank supply to be low, especially at this time of the year. But this last week, before the sunshine returned it was. At least there is artesian water on the property so never a shortage of water anyway.
Gala apples arrive this coming week and at a great bulk price. It’s been a while since apples have been available at $3.99kg bulk so great time to enjoy these new seasons fruit. The Valencia oranges also start this week and will continue through until around May/June. We still have a limited supply of hass avocadoes available, unexpected but great to have. NZ green kiwifruit is very limited now so expecting this to run out soon and the new crops don’t come ready until later April/early May. Most fruit has been early this season and our grapes are also starting to colour – won’t be long now! Yummy!!!
Nectarines are available again this week so enjoy these while you can as this may be the last of them. Plenty of kale, plenty of cavolo nero and even spinach this week. Lots of choice, lots of goodies – enjoy!
Special this week are lettuces. Great value and definitely salad weather!
Special this week
Lettuces @ $2.99 each, 2 for $5.50
Carrots are still in very short supply but hoping to have some juicing ones available later, maybe red lettuces as well. Will be in touch with any updates.
All the very best for the week and love having your orders thanks.
Well we weathered the last storm ok but seems we have more wet weather to come over the next little while. After being so dry at the end of last year this is certainly a welcome reprieve for the irrigators!
This week we have lots of new products. New Zealand Onions are now available and also a few Crown Pumpkin are coming ready along with more Buttercup. Our Red Russian Kale has gone crazy with all this rain as has the Cavolo Nero so plentiful supply of these yummy veggies also.
We have a new apple variety arriving which I don’t know called Posy. This is a blend of Gala and Rose apples so am expecting it to be very good, sounds like a great combination! William Bon Chretien Pears start this week and I notice the Nashi Pears are almost ready to pick. The birds have definitely decided they are ready as I hear them out there now, very happy! We also start the Yen Ben Lemon this week. This is a firmer lemon and a little more difficult to extract the juice. Here is a quick tip for juice extraction which may help ‘Placing lemons in the microwave for a short burst or rolling back and forth on the bench top will help release more juice’.
Still plenty of yummy sweetcorn available, potatoes easing in price, rockmelons divine!, cherries almost finished and oranges the best ever!
Special this week

Our son and daughter-in-law are taking the grandchildren camping today for a few days. Here’s hoping the weather holds out for them; kids will love it either way but not so sure about mum and dad!
