How We Got Started

Goran was born in Montenegro and grew up in Canada. Rose was born in USA and grew up in New Zealand. We met while working on super yachts in Turkey in 2013, and our journey has taken us around the world, living on the sea and visiting different ports. After 6 years at sea we decided it was time to be land based and couldn’t have been happier to come to New Zealand. We spent time traveling the country and were blessed to find an opportunity to intern at a certified organic market garden in Rotorua. Not only did this give us direction in a time of uncertainty it also opened our eyes to a lifestyle and career that we are passionate about.  Through our hard work and determination we have found land to lease where we are setting up our first market garden. Follow along on our journey.  This property was previously run following biodynamic and organic principles. We are over the moon to have the opportunity to create a biodiverse environment to grow healthy vegetables.
