We feel it is important that all aspects of our system are CIRCULAR. Without our community we wouldn’t have a business. We want that community to be strong, happy and healthy. That’s why we donate 5% of all our egg sales to local projects or charities. See below to see some of the initiatives we have supported;
The first 1000 days of a child life are the most important. In Sweden peoples happiness score is one of the highest in the world, why? One of the reasons is they invest in their babies. Their maternity leave is amazing allowing both parents plenty of time to love and nurture their kids in these crucial first years. Unfortunately in New Zealand, although improving, our government is not making the same investment. Thus the reason we are doing our part.

Puaka Bush School
Children learn through play, they love being outside and getting a little crazy. I don’t know of many primary aged children that will happily sit for a full school day. This is where Puaka Bush School comes in, one day a week kids go bush. Stacey, the founder of Puaka Bush School explains the concept.
