Our family business started back in 1962 with a small table, an honesty tin and an umbrella.
A roadside stall on State Highway 16 in Whenuapai, where we grew all of our vegetables and a small apple orchard. In our two glass houses we grew shiny flat beans, cucumbers and tomatoes.
Growing and harvesting our own produce gave our customers real fresh produce at a down to earth price. As a result, our business flourished.
In 1979, we decided to expand and bought a 10 acre orchard in Hobsonville, where we built our second shop, now known as Passion Produce.
After growing our own produce for 30 years, we now source a lot of our produce directly from local farms and orchards.
With many competitors along Hobsonville Road we decided to offer our customers a treat. We built a coffee kiosk which offers Allpress espresso, homemade muffins, smoothies, ginelli’s and Carrello gelato, sorbet and real fruit ice creams.
We stock seasonal spray free fruit and vegetables, a selection of organic goods, gluten-free products, fresh flowers, farm eggs and a variety of bread and milk. We also cover a range of Asian groceries, herbs, spices and more!
So come on in and enjoy an espresso for Dad, flowers for Mum, real fruit ice cream for the kids and fresh produce for the whole family!
