  • Supplier Profile: Cranky Goat & The Drunken Nanny

    New Zealand Goat's Milk Cheese

    Cranky Goat

    Cranky Goat produce hand made goat cheeses using goat milk from their neighbouring farm in Marlborough Sounds. They focus on cheese that is made using traditional methods and recipes with a taste that is enjoyed by everyone, rather than focusing on people with a more discerning palette who prefer a stronger flavoured cheese.

    Their varieties of cheese include soft cheeses ranging in flavours, feta and halloumi and are available from September to May.

    Recently, the Cranky Goat team team have released a cow's milk cheese range, Moody Cow, made with Oaklands A2 Cows Milk and available from May-September in between the goat's cheese seasons.

    The Drunken Nanny

    The Drunken Nanny are based just south of Martinborough in the Wairarapa. All their milk comes from their own herd of milking doe and all milking and cheese making is done on site.

    Their award-winning cheeses are clean, sweet and mild in flavour and include a smooth chevre style fresh cheese range, soft cheeses and feta.

    The cheeses are available from September to around March.

    Cranky Goat and The Drunken Nanny goat's cheeses are available from Moore Wilson's Fresh Markets when in season.

  • Supplier Profile: Tendertips Asparagus

    Tendertips Asparagus

    Husband and wife Geoff and Liz have been growing asparagus and supplying New Zealand food grocers since 1980 and now their son Cam and his wife co-own the business with them.

    They grow several varieties of asparagus, including purple asparagus, and all are grown within 20km of their packhouse, in Himitangi, Foxton and Poroutawhao areas. The geographical spread of crops provides some protection against isolated climatic events.

    The Tendertips Asparagus season is typically 100 days, from mid September till Christmas and occasionally they will have a small amount of asparagus to sell from January to March.

    Tendertips Asparagus is delivered and sold daily to food grocers throughout New Zealand. They also export to Japan. Their Japanese customers enjoy the sweet flavour profile of our asparagus as well as the fresh quality. They have received feedback that their asparagus is the sweetest in the world and they put this down to the temperate growing climate of the Horowhenua.

    They have also more recently diversified into strawberry growing in polytunnels under their new brand Lewis Farm.

    You can find Tendertips Asparagus and Lewis Farm Strawberries, when in season, in the Moore Wilson's Fresh Markets.

  • Supplier Profile: Kingsmeade Artisan Cheese

    Kingsmeade Artisan Cheese

    On the outskirts of Masterton in the Wairarapa, Miles and Janet King have been making ewe and cow's milk cheeses since 1998 and have since won many awards.

    Kingsmeade makes 14 different varieties of cheese, half from ewes' milk and half from cows'. All are uniquely hand crafted, ranging from the aged hard varieties to the deliciously soft.

    Miles is heavily involved in all aspects of the farming and cheesemaking with daily milking, cutting and packaging. Each batch of cheese is hand made in the factory on the farm, right next to the family home. Janet runs the Kingsmeade shop and dispatches orders all across New Zealand.

    They have 200 East Friesian sheep. Traditionally, this breed of sheep have been used as milking sheep mostly in Europe. They are known as friendly, clever, robust, highly fertile (they usually have twins or triplets) and are good milkers. Sheep's milk is extremely high in nutrients compared to other kinds of commercially available milk. In many cases, it is more readily digestible to people who suffer from lactose intolerance. Evidence suggests it can also help people with eczema and other allergies.

    Clevedon Buffalo

    Just south of Auckland on the shores of the Hauraki Gulf is where Richard and Helen Dorresteyn run their family business, owning and operating 200 head of Riverine water buffalo. They produce multiple award-winning fresh buffalo mozzarella, bocconcini, ricotta, yoghurt and marinated buffalo cheese from their fresh buffalo milk.

    Clevedon Buffalo started when Richard and Helen decided they needed a cheese producer to sell fresh cheese at their weekly farmers market so in 2007 they started the first New Zealand buffalo farm. They are involved in the whole process from farming to making, testing and tasting each product to ensure their cheese is of high standard.

    Buffalo milk has a sweeter, cleaner taste than cows milk. It is A2 and contains significantly more protein and calcium than cow’s milk. It has roughly half the cholesterol of cow’s milk. Those who are intolerant to other dairy products often find buffalo milk readily digestible.

    • mozzarella and bocconcini
    • marinated cheese
    • ricotta
    • oaxaca (Mexican style string cheese)

  • Supplier Profile: Bostock Organic Chicken

    Bostock's Organic Free Range Chicken was recently named as the 2020 Supreme Champion of the Outstanding Food Producer awards for their organic whole chicken as well as winning the Paddock Champion award and received two gold medals for their Organic Chicken Thighs, Chicken Breasts and Whole Chicken and received a bronze medal for their sausages.

    The company was started by two brothers, Ben and George, in 2015 when they saw a gap in the market for quality organic free range chicken.

    Ben and George Bostock grew up on their family’s organic apple orchard in sunny Hawke’s Bay and share a family passion for healthy, safe growing practices where there is control from the farm to plate. This means no chemicals, no antibiotics, no hormones and no genetic modification.

    Ben began raising the chickens on pasture in open paddocks near the family apple orchard where he grew up in Hawke's Bay, and when his brother George joined the business last year they moved their chickens on to an apple orchard and built uniquely designed French chalets, which are clean and spacious and enable the chickens to roam freely outside once they are fully feathered.

    The brothers are determined to give their organic chickens the best life. Their apple orchard provides the perfect environment to farm organic chickens. The birds enjoy a happy life roaming freely among the apple trees and are housed in uniquely designed french chalets, which are clean and spacious and enable the chickens to roam freely outside once they are fully feathered.

    Find a range of Bostock Free-Range Organic Chicken at Moore Wilson's Fresh and rotisserie cooked whole chickens from The Chook Wagon.
