Cherie Tipene is no stranger to growing things.
From a young age, Cherie had a vegetable garden at home and was taught by her whanau how to grow the tastiest fruit and vegetables. Her love for good, fresh food only grew with age and with a colourful background in cheffing, and a bright green thumb, it was only a matter of time until Cherie started growing kai for her whanau and friends.
However, the arrival of Covid-19 and lockdown restrictions put a very large spanner in the works- Cherie was sadly made redundant from her job. It was then that Cherie decided to take the plunge, branch out and begin doing what she did best- growing nutritious greens for her community. Thus Marlborough Microgreens was born! What started as a few trays in her garden shed, soon sprouted into a life of it's own- with determination, sweat, more patience than she thought she had, and the backing of her whanau, Marlborough Microgreens expanded into a full blown greenhouse, producing delicious greens for her local restaurants, cafes and community.
Today Cherie grows yummy, healthy, and organic microgreens the old fashioned way, to give them maximum flavour and maximum nutrition.
