Maranui is the home of Family Organics.  Maranui, meaning large garden, is the name we have given to our small farm in the hills of Taranaki, and which is managed under permaculture guidelines.  We are certified with Organic Farm NZ which is a scheme for smaller growers, selling within New Zealand and using the New Zealand Biogro organic standards.  

Beginning with our desire to provide our family with healthy food and a healthy lifestyle, Family Organics has grown out of our aim to share that with others.  You are welcome to search the website for healthy provisions (meat, vegetables, and herbs).  If you would like to share in our lifestyle, contact us to find out when you can join us as a WWOOFer or attend a workshop.
