Chris Ashwell of Tuahiwi Organic Gardens has been growing organic produce since 1995. Our vegetables are lovingly grown without sprays and pesticides in fabulous Paparoa and Temuka silt loam soil in Tuahiwi, North Canterbury.
Chris has a natural connection with his beloved soil and there’s nothing more he loves to do than to walk through his freshly worked soil. He has a natural affinity with the soil and he has the ability to work out what the soil is lacking by smelling it and clasping it in his hand. For him, growing beautiful vegetables starts with the soil.
At Tuahiwi Organic Garden we grow a wide variety of vegetables from everyday staples to more difficult to source vegetables such as celeriac, kohlrabi, turnips, daikon radish and fennel bulb. These vegetables are grown in great soil and irrigated and washed clean in Tuahiwi’s pure artesian water.
Tuahiwi Organic Gardens have now moved with the times and are offering an online vegetable delivery service. More of the same great fruit and vegetables but delivered to your door weekly or whenever you choose.
