What we do

Okiwi Passion grows a wide range of delicious, seasonal, naturally produced vegetables, fruit and seedlings in the sundrenched, fertile Okiwi Basin of Great Barrier Island.

Our vision

Our objective is to create a local food supply for people on Aotea. Our farming is based on ecological and organic principles.

Where to find our produce

Produce and seedlings are available at the Stonewall Village Saturday Market in Tryphena from August to December. Seasonal boxes are available almost year round, picked fresh to order and delivered (or collected from the farm). You can find our Sensational Salad mix at most shops and eateries.

What our customers are saying

The quality and freshness of the organic produce from Okiwi Passion is an inspiration for many of my seasonal dishes. The vibrant colours and the intenseness of flavour you get only from fresh picked fruit and vegetables affords me the pleasure of using produce from Okiwi Passion as an integral flavour in my creations. When planning my menus, it’s always a pleasure to chat with Caity, Gerald and their team to see what’s new and be advised as to when their various crops will be at optimum readiness for the table. They harvest to order and deliver on the same day.Their attention to detail is most appreciated and a great asset for the restaurants on Great Barrier Island.

We have been purchasing weekly veggie boxes from Okiwi Passion for several years. Their produce, service and knowledge are top notch. I frequent their Saturday weekly market stall to top up and ask advice about everything they sell. They are always helpful, enthusiastic and fun. In addition, they provide frequent workshops on all sorts of activities throughout the island. Plus, they will procure anything you could want in terms of trees and seedlings. They are nothing short of amazing.
