A SMALL COMPANY WHO THINK BIG
Our journey started in April 2009 when the the small hut (formerly selling hotdogs and ice cream) came up for tender and we put in a bid, no experience, just enthusiasm. The strong ethics with which we run the company today were part of our founding principles; choose farmers and producers with integrity, those who treat the environment and the animals in their care with respect. After a couple of years of trading April to September we looked at how to take the business forward and approached Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) with a plan for us to build a permanent indoor home for the café in return for a long lease. In May 2009 the café was re-born in its new and current home. It’s been an amazing journey, always evolving and never dull. Ours is a lifestyle; you have to live it, it’s not for the faint-hearted but like most things in life; you get back what you give.
