Are you interested in forming/joining a local co-op (in the Whanganui area) to buy organic meat?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in being involved. And please get in touch if you can suggest possible suppliers. At least at this stage, meat doesn't necessarily have to be _certified_ organic as long as organic methods are being used and the farmers are happy to tell us about the inputs and methods they use. Small amounts or irregular supply is ok too, but the meat needs to be legally available for sale, ie not home kill or hunted. The more local the better.
I already know of one excellent farm in Taranaki (Avonstour) that runs heritage breed organic livestock. It's supplying the co-op in Kapiti and I think we could get something going quite quickly here in Whanganui along similar lines.
Please pass this message onto others whom you think might be interested in buying or supplying.
And if you have any advice about running a co-op like this, it's most welcome!
