Jujube Trees

I have 24 Jujube trees for sale in Hawkes Bay including grafted Li and Chico. They are 6 years old and approx 2 metres in height (fruiting).  Cant be picked up till dormant. They have been treated and spent time in quarantine when first brought into the country. Not easy to come by in NZ and great fruiting trees.JulsSee More

Breakfast Cereals

Breakfast often constitutes one of the most important meals of the day and as such, the wide variety of products available for this particular meal. The market works in a seemingly simple way where…

Raising chickens for eggs and meat

There are environmental and animal rights groups constantly talking about the horrors of conventionally farmed chicken. After years of being a blind consumer, I opened my eyes and realized that there was a problem. I have approached the problem in a way that is pretty unique among my peers.

The vegans want me to give up meat. Unfortunately, I would starve. I am allergic to just about every plant based protein you can name. I also become violently ill when I eat seafood and…

autumn's abundance

the American tradition of thanksgiving and English harvest festivals all makes sense when I reflect on the past few weeks. Been given apples, pears, plums, quinces, free range eggs, harvesting my saffron and not even begun to prepare my garlic for sharing and planting, been so busy making jam, jellies, quince paste, bottling apples and blackboy peaches.
