32. Discovering the future of food at Wairarapa Eco Farm

32. Discovering the future of food at Wairarapa Eco Farm

The Wairarapa Eco Farm was born out of a desire to produce quality food with ecological integrity. The farm is situated on the Tauherenikau Plains in South Wairarapa. Over the last 20+ years, it has grown from bare paddocks into a secluded oasis. The owners, Frank and Josje, and their family have created their very own micro-climate which has given them the opportunity to grow a wide variety of crops for their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programme.

In this episode, I visit the farm to learn more about the CSA concept, meet the team who are so passionate about feeding healthy food to their local community, and get a glimpse into what it's like to live in a world where you are constantly co-creating with nature.
