Using our resources – our existing TruckAbout delivery service (see www.truckabout.co.nz), our time and a little bit of initiative we offer to you the opportunity to sell your produce direct to the public in Doubtless Bay. In addition we can provide a Northland retail distribution network, further afield. There are no costs to you what-so-ever, we simply ask to buy your produce at a reasonable wholesale rate.

Paul & Viv
Allow me to introduce myself, Vivian Rockach, as your new Networker creator/publisher. As discussed at the AGM, the Networker will be making a comeback this year.
We will appreciate any contributions from the members to make it interesting & relevant. You can email these directly to me at email@example.com.
The new look Networker will be issued 2-3 weeks before the next field-day which is scheduled for mid May. Roel & Liz de Boer (Kerikeri Organic Fruit) are the hosts. Further details will be provided shortly.
Looking forward to receiving updates and news items from you!
For those coming to the field day tomorrow, please bring your own (folding) chair if possible. We have a few but not many.
