We’re down with Ooooby – Adam & Tink

About three years ago Tink and I moved from Wellington to a 12 acre block in Kāpiti with dreams of community and growing food.

When we heard Pete and James speak at a local talk earlier this year our curiosity was piqued. After a few false starts and a lot of discussion we realised that Ooooby aligned with our dreams and values and began talking to them about how we might get involved.

Adam and TinkThe more we talked the more we felt that Ooooby provides a powerful way for us to build a livelihood from our home in Kāpiti while hopefully providing a valuable contribution to the local food system. Tink is an ardent foodie and we both believe that great food is an essential part of good health. Ooooby will let us help local growers get produce to customers for a fair price. 

We hope that will result more growers producing organic food for sale locally for the benefit of the entire region! We’ve been talking to lots of people about Ooooby and have been surprised and excited to discover how many people are eager to support great local food. 

Bring it on!

  • I am so enjoying working with you two, and look forward to seeing the Kapiti Ooooby hub blossom and bear fruit for you and those around you in the coming months and years.

  • Jamie Allcock

    Kapiti Ooooby? Do you need an oprational hub & fully staffed pick and pack and coldstore?

    • Hey Jamie, we’re hoping to run it from our own property but it would be good to have a chat about what you’ve got going on! Drop us a line. 🙂

    • Pete Russell

      That’s an interesting proposition Jamie. Maybe worth sending an email to Adam and Tink at kapiticoast@ooooby.com

  • Christopher Dean

    How is it going setting up the Kapiti hub?
    Keen to be a customer and maybe even to help?

    • Hey Christopher, thanks for getting in touch. We’re in the middle of sorting out all the paperwork with Ooooby HQ but are hopeful that will be resolved in the next few weeks. Once that’s in place it’ll be time to start contacting potential growers and getting organised on the ground!

      Send me an email and I’ll add you to the list of people to be notified once we’re at the customer stage. If you’d like to help out that would be great too, let’s meet up and have a chat!

      Cheers,
      Adam.
