We have been using The Organic Connection for over 4 years and it has always been fantastic. We love the fresh seasonal fruits and veges and Lorraine is brilliant to deal with. Highly recommend!
Thanks Lorraine, we have enjoyed our fortnightly surprise from Organic Connection for some years now, you have always been great to communicate with and its a joy to know we are getting good quality organic produce freshly delivered to the door cheers
It is no small thing to have maintained the unparalleled quality of the Organic Connection’s service for so many years, and that fact stands as testimony to the enduring passion and professionalism of Lorraine Upham. We have been Lorraine’s customers for many years, following on from long-standing participation in the fondly missed Organic Co-op. Now that interest in organics has become trenchantly mainstream, it gives us great pleasure to continue to support one of Wellington’s original providers of wonderful organic fruit and vegetables.Were it not the case, however, that the Organic Connection remains the most exceptional of organic purveyors, we might have explored other options – even if just for novelty’s sake! But year in year out, the Organic Connection remains the best of the best. There is still nothing quite like opening one of their boxes, and looking forward to all the wonderful meals we will soon enjoy. Simply put, the Organic Connection has always been the gold standard, and so it remains.
We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 boys, and have been getting a fortnightly box of organic vegetables from The Organic Connection for the past 6 years. Partly for health reasons, partly for ecological reasons, we made a conscious choice to buy organic vegetables, both as a way to look after and optimise our family’s long term health and also to support the growers who are protecting the earth and conserving ancient ways of doing things.
We love getting our box – we get heaps in it and it makes us eat seasonally and more widely than we probably would normally. There is often the mystery vegetable or fruit that i have to think “what do I do with that?” Helpfully Lorraine provides recipes that are easy and yummy (and now I know what to do with things like Daikon and Chokos).
We find we have very little wastage and manage to incorporate everything we get into our diet.
It also makes the supermarket trip so much quicker, not having to stop, bag and weigh veges, and although buying organic is a little more expensive, we think The Organic Connection box is a really economical way to buy organic and worth it for the above reasons.
Lorraine is always very helpful, friendly and efficient and we would (and do) recommend The Organic Connection to anyone.
