Or­gan­i­cally grown fresh pro­duce

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

As­pir­ing Or­gan­ics strive to of­fer a wide se­lec­tion of qual­ity or­ganic prod­ucts. Or­ganic fresh pro­duce can be dif­fi­cult to find so they de­cided to fo­cus on grow­ing the pro­duce that was not avail­able. At the mo­ment they grow greens that thrive in the cli­mate and source other fresh pro­duce from lo­cal grow­ers. They reg­u­larly sell out of their spicy salad mix which they say their cus­tomers love. They also en­joy grow­ing un­usual veg­eta­bles and in­tro­duc­ing their cus­tomers to dif­fer­ent tastes. Con­versely, they have ap­pre­ci­ated their cus­tomers in­tro­duc­ing them to new prod­ucts while im­prov­ing the range of prod­ucts As­pir­ing Or­gan­ics sup­ply. As­pir­ing Or­gan­ics is lo­cated near Wanaka. Cus­tomers are able to pur­chase online or visit the farm store on Thurs­days and Fri­days. Cus­tomers can also find them in Frankton ev­ery Satur­day, ei­ther at the Re­mark­ables mar­ket or at Crisp and Vale when the mar­ket is not op­er­at­ing. If you live fur­ther afield they can ar­range de­liv­ery just ask. Nick and Ann have been de­vel­op­ing their prop­erty dur­ing the past two years and now have a large area planted out in fruit trees and raised vegetable gar­dens. They fol­low a per­ma­cul­ture phi­los­o­phy and are able to sup­ply most of the nat­u­ral re­sources re­quired for their ven­ture. For ex­am­ple: the lucerne they grow is used for com­post, mulch, stock feed and raised gar­den beds. Water and ir­ri­ga­tion is supplied by a so­lar pow­ered bore pump. They also run sheep and cat­tle and a few chick­ens which pro­vide the free range eggs.
