Hi my name is Angela, my husband, Nick, and I bought some land twelve years ago when it was just a paddock with a single tree. Since then we’ve turned it into a piece of earth that feeds and sustains us, our three children, a constant supply of Wwoofers, a menagerie of animals, and a small community of CSA members.
While we’ve always grown food, Nick and I have been in the wine business for most of our lives. Nick is the General Manager for the Greystone and Muddy Water vineyards and we have our own label Tongue in Groove Wines.
I’m also the co-ordinator for New Zealand’s fledgling food movement ConversatioNZ.
We also have a significant interest in the wild food of our region. We hunt the hills, fish the oceans and rivers, and collect wild fruit, mushrooms and greens from the bits in-between.
Despite our other interests The Food Farm is our ‘Tūrangawaewae’, a Māori term for ‘our place to stand’. This is where we feel empowered and connected. This is our home.
We hope you’ll be able to join us. If not around our table, then be part of our extended family by becoming a CSA member, or simply by following our journey on our blog, Instagram or Facebook.
