Welcome to Abundant Backyard

Abundant Backyard provides certified organic produce to the community and local businesses. It promotes organic and nature-friendly farming systems and practices that are energy efficient, climate friendly and oriented towards the conservation of the environment. It also promotes awareness to sustainable farming. All planting, cultivating and harvesting is done with hand tools. There is no use of big machinery on the farm. Abundant Backyard has the purpose of producing organic food accessible to all people. We believe that these foods improve the functioning of our organism, prevent diseases and help to take care of the health of the planet and those who consume. Vegetables, microgreens and herbs from the producer straight to your table! All healthy and fresh.

“Fresh, Local, Organic – straight from the farm to your table”

The Farm

The farm is located at Whakamarama Road, on a permaculture inspired piece of land. The owners are the founders of Plenty Permaculture which offers permaculture education and consultant services for properties in the Bay of Plenty area. They have a ten acre property with lovely soils and plentiful water and are delighted to welcome Silvio to get the gardens humming and producing in a sustainable manner.

Dear customers, 

Market gardening is a job that requires a lot of strength, dedication, love, patience, mental and physical health. We have been in this journey for the last 6 years and it is time now to take a break.

My family and I finally managed to buy tickets to go to Brazil on holiday and also to introduce our kids to our family. We are going to be away from the June 27th and during this period, until next spring, Abundant Backyard will not be present at the Wellcome Farmers Market and Papamoa Farmers Market.

Veggie boxes will also not be supplied during this time. We will supply them again in September/October.

We will still have our stall at the Tauranga Farmers Market every Saturday morning from 7:45am till 12pm.

We count on your understanding and support.

Silvio Maffra
