A little bit about us
Realising a dream for Kiwis to raise organic beef
Misty Meadows was established by Taryn Lunny in 2015, when her decades-long dream of offering organic beef became a reality. With increasing demand for organic produce and a growing desire by consumers to know where their food came from, Taryn wanted to give Kiwis the opportunity to raise their own animal and have it home-killed for their consumption.
Taryn worked in England as a Legal Personal Assistant for many years. She had always had an interest in organic farming. While in the UK, she became passionate about the ‘Paddock to Plate’ approach to food and how to lead a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.
Paddock to Plate
Paddock to Plate recognises that food doesn’t start its life on supermarket shelves. It provides us with full transparency of where that food came from and how it was farmed. While Tayrn was in the UK, this was being popularised in the UK by River Cottage, a restaurant, cookery and chef’s school in East Devon, which also had a successful TV show on Channel 4.
From our farm to your home
Upon her return to New Zealand, Taryn started her own organic beef farming operation, the produce from which she now offers to other followers of the Paddock to Plate movement.
