What we grow
Our farms are located in and around the Mangere airport peninsular and extend around the Waikato area. Recently we opened a salad operation in the Nelson, Upper Moutere area to better serve the South Island and provide employment opportunities in the region.
We grow outdoors in and amongst nature and enjoy the delights of the changing seasons. Sun and rain are what grow strong vibrant healthy plants and we are fortunate
in both Auckland and Nelson to be able to grow year round outdoors. We grow baby leaf products and all manner of fancy lettuce varieties. Some of our most popular
lines are baby spinach, rocket, beets, chards, Asian greens, frisee, mustards and kale. Our lettuces range from a colorful mix of butters, frilled, oaks, batavias, cos types and heirlooms varieties.
We are committed to the NZ GAP Quality Assurance Programme on our farms and are able to trace our finished products back to the block of land the salads came from.
We have been growing sprouts for twenty two years and so there isn’t much we don’t know about growing them. Sprouts are grown indoors in a temperature controlled environment. Each sprout has its own particular way of growing and unique conditions that it favours. We grow alfafa, mung beans/bean sprouts, snow pea shoots, tasty combo beans, radish, onion and broccoli sprouts.
One of our dreams has recently come to fruition. We have always wanted to grow watercress (we love it) but it was always on the back burner in favour of our baby leaf products. Our watercress facility is now fully operational and based at our salad processing site in Mangere, outdoors under cover. We have created an innovative system unique to us that is growing vibrant flavourful cress.
