About Liberty Growers
Liberty Growers is a family business, owned by Debbie and Malcolm Miller. We are based in Katikati, Western Bay of Plenty and grow salads, herbs and a smaller range of seasonal vegetables and fruit. We sell the majority of our produce at local farmers markets - Katikati, Tauranga, Mount Maunganui. We also sell wholesale locally and to the Auckland market.
We bought Liberty Growers from the previous owners in August 2012. Our son Chris and his partner Jess, along with their daughter Esme lived onsite and managed the business for seven years, before our daughter, Rosie, her partner Sioeli and his brother Joseph moved to the region. Sioeli has been our onsite Farm Manager since January 2020.
We often have family and friends visiting who enjoy helping with the weekend markets, so if you're a regular customer you may see new faces on the stall from time to time.
We have expanded our range of produce a lot since we bought the business. We have also branched out into making pestos and sugar-free hot sauces.
We enjoy eating our fresh produce as well as experimenting with new recipes that use our herbs. Check out the Recipes page, our instagram or facebook for inspiration, or chat to us at the market as we have printed copies available of a wide variety of recipes.
We would love to hear from you if you have any recipes to share that use our produce.
