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.
The 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!
Adam & Tink
