To put it mildly, Vanya Maw is Wonder Woman. Armed with a precious orchard, a roving kiosk (mostly found at the Riccarton Rotary Sunday Market – isle H) and a pack of extremely loved animals, her mission for world domination is simple: make bread not war.
Since 1992, Vanya Maw has been running Wyenova Organic Farm situated at 740 Waterholes Road (less than 10 minutes from Hornby) where she farms just about anything eatable you can think of; ample vegetables, fruit, nuts, wheat, stone ground whole-weat flour, wool, red clover herbal hay, free-range eggs, honey and more! On most Sundays, Vanya sells her organic produce alongside delicious vegan slices, cakes, soups, sandwiches and more at the Riccarton Rotary Sunday Market. What’s so sweet/special about Vanya is that she is not concerned with making a profit but is instead, content with very little. In short, she is extremely spiritual, taking utmost pleasure in nature and the outdoors. (She’s such a big/little cutie!). So go on, pay her a visit this Sunday and I promise you won’t be disappointed! In fact, I’m just about to toast some of her purplewheat loaf (which she grows, grinds and magically turns into bread herself) for brekkie. Nom nom!
