Episode details

We're headed North! The A Kiwi Original trip across Te Waipounamu (South Island) takes us to Timaru and Ashburton, where we meet up with Timaru Bluestone and Hekeao Feed Co.

Hekeao Feed Co. is a new business that is making waves in the equine nutrition space. Most of the ingredients are grown on the Director, Josh Rushton's farm. Hekeao utilises the unique agricultural landscape of Ashburton to grow nutritious and delicious feed that you can trace from farm to feed-bowl.

Timaru Bluestone is a family business that again utilises the natural advantage of the Canterbury region. Forged in lava flow of ancient volcanoes, the bluestone that surrounds the Timaru area makes for decadent and beautiful material in architectural homes.
