This was after 2 rounds of judging from 10 different judges. They looked at all areas of our Nursery, staffing, financial management and environmental impact.

  2. Hill Laboratories Harvest award
  3. Meridian Energy Excellence award

In winning this gives us confirmation that our business follows management practices that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.

The Judges were impressed that we have stopped burning coal and now have installed a sustainable and renewable wood burning Polytechnik  boiler.

We have over a number of years been reducing our chemical use, which is now 90% reduction.

We chose this path as floriculture workers have a high incidence of health issues, related to chemical residue. So we are now growing flowers that are better for us, yourselves your staff and customers.

The judging team were very impressed by our nursery operation and anyone who is wishing to visit is more than welcome, just contact Ian 0273364221 or Lyn and Paul
