The Hemp Farm NZ

Standard

Who would like to be sent a 250ml bottle of Organic Hemp Seed Oil from Hemp Farm NZ Ltd as part of our Vegan & Eco-Friendly Giveaway?

Hemp Farm
The Hemp Farm was started by Dave and Anna who are passionate about the many uses of hemp and its environmental benefits. It is an absolutely amazing plant that is extremely versatile, yet it has been given such a bad name from the association to illegal drugs which has caused many different laws throughout countries. By the way, all of the goodness that comes out of these plants are not actually drugs and are extremely good for you!

“Hemp seed oil is an amazing addition to a vegan diet as it does provide those essential fatty acids in the optimum 3-1 ratio, plus all your essential minerals, amino acids and vitamin E. Plus it is chemical free and environmentally sustainable.” ~Hemp Farm NZ Ltd

Their oil is cold-pressed and 100% organic packed with lots of nutrition. There are so many uses for the oil. An easy way to add hemp oil into your food is in a salad, kale, veggies, or smoothies. I would love to make hemp pesto.

I really like hemp milk which is also extremely beneficial. I have even had hemp cereal, hemp butter, hemp seeds, and all sorts of yummy raw hemp desserts. There are plenty of opportunities in the future to see the benefits of this plant being used and being legal to consume in New Zealand, and I really look forward to following along and seeing The Hemp Farm grow and make this happen in New Zealand. If you come across hemp seed meal or hemp seed flour, it is a human grade product, but it is only legally able to be sold as animal feed in NZ. However, it is legal for humans to consume.

In case you missed it, The Hemp Farm was featured on Global Radar, and there is an article about their hemp seed on p.15 in the Nourish magazine. Hopefully all of the media coverage and people becoming more knowledgable about the uses and environmental benefits of hemp will help to gain more acceptance. Check out their New Zealand Hemp Crop Gallery. Recently they had their hemp fiber and hurd harvest which you can watch here.

Most of you know how much I like cloth nappies, and hemp is great for nappies and inserts. I would also love to use hemp in making body care, jewelry, and even in my house if I ever decided to build. The possibilities really are endless!

Vegan & Eco-Friendly Giveaway

Standard

Wow! I am so excited about such a HUGE response from some awesome vegan and eco-friendly New Zealand businesses. I hope that all of you are supporting them already, but since some of them might be new to you, this is a great time to check out their websites and Facebook pages. They have all been extremely generous in offering some amazing products which you will have a chance to win!

Rather than do a bunch of separate giveaways, I thought it might be fun to combine everything together and run one big giveaway through Rafflecopter on my Facebook page in hopes to gain even more awareness. Please take the time to share the photo or giveaway links with friends as there are lots of opportunities to win. All of these companies are making a huge effort whether their focus is on helping to protect our environment or providing cruelty-free alternatives, and I think that we can all help make an impact by supporting these companies as well.

Below you will find the details, and throughout the giveaway I will write some individual posts to give you more insight and our personal thoughts about each. However, it will just give you more reasons to be excited as we love all of these businesses and have had such positive experiences 🙂

Fort & Teepee

Standard

peek a boo

A few chairs, a blanket, and some beautiful sarongs…our lounge was transformed into a magical place.

peek a boo

Zaedyn was full of excitement as he ran in and out of his new hiding place. Yes, with only one gumboot! I could not help smiling and playing along as I saw his big smiles and listened to his never ending giggles. They really are the best! We spent the entire morning playing in his new fort. He definitely had a few tickles whenever I found him.

teepee

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, we decided to search our garage for some of the bamboo that David cut down for us. It was quite difficult trying to put our teepee together with little hands to help, but I love that he was so curious and interested in building our teepee. I literally just took some twine and wrapped it around lots of different ways. It worked for us. The bamboo alone was exciting, but I knew we had to find some sort of cover. Hmmm…

teepee

Yip, our Winter sheet will do. We hopefully won’t be needing it for awhile anyways! Wrapped around and tucked under the twine, it completed our teepee and another new hiding place.

After a bit of playing around, Zaedyn was telling me, “Yoga,” and went looking for the yoga mat. I helped roll it out, and we found his yoga book. He was super excited about the tree pose that he is still doing it in the picture once I turned the page. I love hearing him get excited about yoga and that he can tell me tree pose and show me what it is. I think he is a clever little yogi.

teepee
Having a teepee is really exciting enough, but if you want another fun activity, why not have a tea party inside your teepee?!

Add some gluten-free vegan scones, and your tea party is that much yummier than your pretend treats.

Can you tell how much fun we have been having? I was kind of getting used to our living room being crowded by a fort and teepee, but we decided to return our dining chairs back to the table until next time. However, we still have our giant teepee in our lounge, and with this much needed rain in NZ after a drought, I think it might be staying up for awhile. We are lucky enough to have a covered deck so that we can get some fresh air and still have some time outside even when it is pouring down. Do you and your little ones build forts or teepees? Possibly even some other cool hiding places in empty boxes? Feel free to share as you might inspire us in our next fort or hiding space.

GIVEAWAY DETAILS…

These are all NZ based and are amazing in their efforts to support a sustainable future.
