Grower Mentorship Program

If you are a local grower/supplier or interested in being one, we have started a Grower Mentorship Program which can give you the contacts you need to get started growing for the local community via New Zealand's Patch.

The purpose of this program is to encourage more growers to pop up and current local growers to expand, this help money is to be shared fairly throughout the community to reshape the local food and financial systems.

We provide you with:

  • The contacts, support and resources you need to get started.
  • An outlet to sell through in which you are guaranteed +70% of the retail value, compared to 25-50% via supermarkets, wholesalers and other to door food services. 

If you are interested please contact Hayden on 02102466533 or contact us via email.

"We believe New Zealand's Patch will enable local growers, (like us), to thrive by making our products more easily and quickly available to the community.

New Zealand's Patch take care of everything from delivery to distribution and pay us generously for our organic eggs and kumara enabling us to get on with doing what we love to do, grow and produce the freshest and best products available.

We see that this will have a huge impact encouraging local producers to expand and supply with new people wanting to grow and develop as well.

New Zealand's Patch could easily revitalise and reshape the local food and financial systems in Wellsford and surrounding areas."
