At the time of Rodger Witson’s closure, he had to start dumping good products, given the fact that he had a small business.
He owns a 4a property outside of Mosul, owned by Genefield Pionius and Hydroponics.
That fresh produce is usually sold at Otago farmers markets and to select restaurants and cafes.
We only grow half a dozen production lines and good quality. We have a really good customer base in the farmer market, and some of the restaurants and cafes we serve have a good location.
But he was locked up for a week and there was nowhere to go.
Although Witson’s income may have stagnated, it is likely to grow due to the high season of the greenhouse.
We have just started throwing [the produce] He’s out … he’s coming to that point, ”he said.
Things are growing, but you have to keep planting. That’s right.
It has about 10,000 plants, up to 2,000 covered.
Mr. Witson usually made $ 3,000 to $ 4,000 a week during this time, which is likely to be closer to summer.
“Hopefully, we are not too long in the lock,” he said.
Although the business is eligible for a government subsidy, Mr Witson said the challenge is unknown.
“We came here from one end to the other … maybe I was looking for a job in the public service,” he said.
Dale Jordan, owner of Saddleview Greens, should not have dropped any products yet, but it is a real opportunity if the lock continues.
As the days went by, there were many products for sale, but “there was not much going on.”
While Sadlevel offers supermarkets, the loss of restaurants, cafes, hostels and other services was a big drop in sales.
If the lock is not loosened by the end of next week, he should have considered throwing the product away.
” It will be close. ”
