Just Arrived

End of Season

Brussel Sprouts – Now being sourced from the South Island, as the season is finished in the North. Forecasted to remain available for another 1-2 weeks but the quality can decline quickly if some warmer weather arrives.

Kalettes – Last few days of the season.

Jerusalem Artichokes – Unfortunately an early finish is on the cards this year as it looks like we are in the last week or two of supply.

Yams & Earth Gems – Season coming to a finish, should be around until the end of the month.

White, Yellow & Purple Table Carrots – We are counting down the days until the season finishes. These varieties don’t like growing in Pukekohe so are only around over Winter.

Heads Up!
