Why “Miranda Energy Park”?
Esk Rd Organics, Miranda Energy Park, Gusto Energy Ltd
Let me explain:
1 Gusto Energy manufactures small wind turbines, hence the company name Gusto Energy Ltd, and the off-grid electricity systems.
2 Miranda Energy Park is the name of a 12Ha property, where Gusto Energy products and systems are on display, and where Esk Rd Organics grows everything. The property is a showcase for renewable energy and the power never goes off – no more monthly electricity bills.
3 Organic certification for the whole property was gained in 2017, hence the name Esk Rd Organics.
So, actually, all three are the same thing. It’s just the story of my journey.
Miranda Energy Park is a certified organic 12.5Ha property, rich in biodiversity, and totally powered by renewable energy. There are renewable energy technologies on display, and the energy of life is everywhere.
Buying food that is grown here has the following benefits:
1 Gives you food security – the complete history of the food is known and is largely documented: all your questions can be answered.
2 Produce sold in vege boxes is harvested the same day as delivery (leafy greens), the previous day, or over the previous week (summerfruit). Duck eggs delivered to customers on Fridays are never more than 1 week old.
3 All fresh produce is certified organic with BioGro NZ (#5635).
4 All the electricity used comes from solar panels and wind turbines. All space heating uses solid fuel burners powered by woody biomass harvested off the property.
5 Food varieties are selected for high nutritional value, often heirloom veges and heritage fruits that are hardy and rare – you can taste the difference!
