You can grow peas again!

Commercial and home gardeners can again grow pea plants and use pea straw as garden bedding material! Biosecurity New Zealand is confident that there are no pea weevils remaining in Wairarapa, and so New Zealand.

Shop is open again...

Frances from Masterton District

Hi folks... hope life for you all, is getting back to "normal" again - whatever that might be.......... and, yes my wee shop is open once again. I have new stock on shelves of most products, and working on getting new signage for out front. If the sign is out - then shop is open - until 6th June open from 9. After that date more likely open from noon. Now selling Mountain Gold Manuka Honey. Photos are of a few of the products on the shelves.
First Honey plasters, and Manuka Lozenges are on special. Website is - www.everwell... . I will soon be back working elsewhere - part time once again - so shop cannot be open all day.
