What members are saying

Brown Owl's long term commitment to supply organic produce is an asset to our community. I buy from Brown Owl because of the holistic philosophy and flexibility for ordering only what I need."


Organic food is just so much better for you. Before, I used to go all the way over to Tauranga to get my organic food. Now it's so good to have Brown Owl in Rotorua!
