Cedenco Foods held our annual growers meeting for 2013 this week, with growers from Gisborne, Wairoa and Tolaga Bay in attendance.
August 8th saw the start of the 47th Annual Poverty Bay Charity Sheep Dog trial. Proceeds from the event were donated to local charities such as IHC, Gisborne Riding for the Disabled and ECT Rescue Helicopter. In spite of the wet weather, the events went well thanks to the Riding Club for the Disabled indoor arena. Cedenco Foods and other local businesses supported the event providing clothing and funds.
We started our 2013/ 2014 pea programme on Wednesday 30 July. The picture shows planting of a local paddock just north of Gisborne. This area is characterised by deep, free draining recent river silt soil which are common on the Poverty Bay Flats. We expect to be harvesting this paddock around the middle of November.
