The people behind Fresh2U Organic Food Delivery
Hi! I’m Lucy and I am the owner, packing slave, delivery driver, administrator, chief cook and bottlewasher at Fresh2U!
Supporting organic producers and working within my local community are two key areas that I believe are integral to the future of this country and the planet, so it is a pleasure for me to provide our customers with produce which is untainted and as local as possible.
I started off as a customer of Fresh2U and when I was offered the opportunity to buy in to the business I couldn’t say no! I LOVE fresh fruit and vegetables (evidence of this can be found on our Facebook page) and am an avid cook, baker, smoothie maker, preserver, kitchen experimenter and of course eater ; )
I look forward to providing you with the best of local, organic produce to support your health & longevity & that of the planet & our community.
Clinton ‘Scruff’ Edmonds
Working alongside me on a Wednesday is Scruff – a keen vegetable grower
himself, Scruff has been the house husband & produce grower (amongst other skills) for his family for the last 13 years and really appreciates a good bit of veg – we talk growing tips, recipes & more as we pack up your deliveries each week.
Tracey Marvin – Tasman Organics
Tracey Marvin is the grower at Tasman Organics in Appleby where we source some of our delicious produce from & also where the Fresh2U packing operation is based.
Tracey is much much more than just farmer & landlord to us at Fresh2U, she is an integral part of the Wednesday team – harvesting to order if other suppliers are short, helping with sorting & packing, taking the mickey out of us at every opportunity, making top coffee & great morning teas & controlling all the combined kids who join us at work in the school holidays!
Since the inception of Fresh2U as an enterprise run by Wolfgang Mann (ex owner of the Appleby farm) & Nicola Galloway (author & blogger extraordinaire at Homegrown Kitchen), Fresh2U & this Appleby property have always worked together to supply organic produce to the people of Nelson/Tasman & beyond. Even though the farm has changed hands (and names!) in that time, the relationship between farmer, Fresh2U & customers has been maintained as one of the core strands of the business. We support each other to promote organics in the region & supply the best quality produce to the best customers!
It is our absolute pleasure to work alongside Tracey at Tasman Organics & together we have many exciting plans for the future of our relationship & the further promotion of healthy food, healthy planet & healthy community.
