making our new chocfish by maramataka
The Māori lunar calendar, maramataka, says the gift of September, Mahuru, is a new generation of whitebait - 'te ahunga o uruao'. We are now putting our energy into making our next run of giant kōkopu chocolate fish - ready for you in the next month. We have decided to refresh and enliven our eco-friendly packaging. And as always we give 6 cents from the sale of each chocfish to the Whitebait Connection who link in with local schools and iwi to clean up NZ waterways.

Fish of the day;
Richard Pearse, First to Fly.
This Kiwi farmer/genius built and flew the first ‘heavier than air’ aircraft to take off under its own power, on 31 March 1903 in Timaru. The bamboo and scrap- metal plane flew about 140 metres before it crashed into a gorse bush. Unfortunately, the flight was poorly documented, allowing the Wright Brothers to claim the first flight 9 months later on 17 Dec 1903.
