AVONLEA COTTAGE GARDENS - KATI KATI

We moved here to Katikati 2002, bringing our Deer with us to a fenced 18 HA deer farm on the South side of Katikati. We came with the view and purchased the right property so that we could plant Avocados on.

We began immediately planting 200 trees in our front paddock. Avocados are a little fickle to grow in the early stages, you have to battle the wind, dry, frost all a bit stressful, but once they have a few years and size on them they grow like a weed. They respond well to a lot of pruning, fertilizer and mulch. These trees are the Hass/Zutana variety.

2014 & 2015 we have planted another 350 Hass/Dusa a new clonal variety which are slightly more vigorous in their growth, but more shallow rooted. So we have to wait another year or two for these to fruit for us. We have usually exported our Avocados, but now we would like to sell direct to the NZ people with an excellent quality fruit that is not available in the supermarkets. We know you will enjoy.

DUCK EGGS

DELICIOUS FREE RANGE DUCK EGGS

Duck eggs are incredibly nutritious as well as delicious. Pastry chefs in particular love duck eggs as they are higher in both fat and albumen (egg white) which makes for fluffier, richer baked goods.

Due to the larger size, a single duck egg is obviously going to be higher in protein and other nutrients than a corresponding chicken egg. Even after adjusting the nutrients to a per gram level, duck eggs are still the nutritional winner.

While duck eggs aren’t going to replace chicken eggs in popularity anytime soon, if you have the opportunity to enjoy them on occasion, know that they are a delicious and extremely nutritious food to incorporate into your kitchen routine.
