There’s a journey involved in getting meat and produce from the farm to your plate, and at Pihi Farms, that journey is carefully nurtured every step of the way.

Q&A with Phil of Pihi Farms

Why North Canterbury? We are blessed with a bioregion that allows us to eat almost our entire diet from local, seasonal produce of such diversity. I can’t think of anywhere in the world we’d have the same variety in such a small area. We are outdoors people and there are so many accessible activities on our doorstop here from surfing to skiing, mountain biking to kayaking, fishing to tramping, the only hard part is finding time to do all the things on offer.

What’s your favourite thing to do in North Canterbury? It’s pretty hard to beat a surf at Gore Bay on a summer’s evening when it’s working.

Name your top three North Canterbury brands (apart from your own, of course!): There are so many awesome producers in the region doing really special things so its hard to pick just 3!  But ones that really stand out for us are;

Manuka Bay Honey – we share very similar values, the most caring and intelligent team I have ever met, and their seasonal honeys are out of this world.

Jack’s Eggs – we need more people producing eggs like this family, with both the animal’s and environment’s health in mind.

Black Estate – if we are ever going to celebrate a special occasion, I’ll be reaching for a bottle of their Netherwood Pinot.
