Organic Vegetables

Partnering with Nature

Late 2014 we were thrilled when Jason and Anisa from Sunset Coast Organics contacted us to produce organic seedlings for their certified organic production in Waiuku.

  • Sunset Coast Organics are producers of high quality organic herbs and vegetables for restaurants and retailers, and their product is so tasty and rich-full of antioxidants.
  • We quickly introduced new processes to meet AssureQuality Organics Certification Standards. This included setting up a controlled area in the nursery and adopting systems dedicated to the production of organic celery, lettuce, endive, kale, silver beet, a range of herbs and other vegetables.
  • We implemented organic fertiliser and folia spray schedules - although we deal with the same kind of pests we were pleased to see the results from fully certified organic products.
  • Our biggest challenge was achieving good germination rates on a couple of products, and investigating the seed and soil mix factors affecting production...although it was nerve racking at the time, we came through… and we learnt a lot.
  • We are enjoying learning from our new friends at Sunset Coast Organics and we’re especially interested in how they partner with nature on their farm.
  • We now have other clients requesting we propagate organic product for them and we are enjoying growing this area.
