MANY THANKS FOR ALL THE OPTIONS AND SUGGESTIONS. MANAGED TO GET A RIDE THERE AND BACK ON THE 28TH. All my options have fallen thru and I need to get to Wellington Airport by 9.00 a.m Thursday 24 October. Public transport is out of the question as I will have a large suitcase, a smaller suitcase and a walking frame unless someone is able to come with me to carry the suitcases. Is anyone going in that direction. I wouldn't mind if someone is getting an earlier flight, I have a book to read while waiting for my flight. I will also need help to get back to Otaki on Mon 28 Oct when my flight gets in at 5.05 p.m. I can contribute towards petrol. Any help or suggestions most appreciated
Free Range Eggs: How big would you expect flocks to be to meet your idea of "Free Range"?
60% of NZ-ers surveyed by Consumer NZ answered: 1500 or fewer.
According to Consumer's survey of egg suppliers, of the 32 companies which replied, 2, both certified by Assurequality/Biogro met this expectation as did 1 other not apparently certified, (Benzie Free Range, flock numbers 600 -1000). The Certified companies were:
Bio Eggs (Zealand Farms) 1500
Bio Land Organic Free Range (Pasture Poultry Co.)
Pasture Poultry Organic Free Range (Pasture Poultry Co)
Kirkfield Family Farm came in at 1800.
Big Paddock topped the list, flock sizes 4,000-10000.
Many of the others claimed a range of flock sizes starting at 500 at the low end but with other flocks up to 10,000 in number as in the case of Big Paddock.
Our local company Benniks was not listed.

Hi neighbours, the Levin courthouse will be closed for earthquake strengthening. To reduce disruption, justice officials are considering requests to pay travel costs to different venues. The work is likely to take four months but a solid re-opening date was not available. What are your thoughts on this? Comment below.
