Based in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand, we are a family owned supply store for those who want to live a simple and self-reliant life. In 2008 we noticed how hard it was to source quality, practical supplies for our kitchen and garden and Country Trading Co. was born. Since then we have developed a range of products to help other growers and makers in their endeavors.
We value living simple, having less and enjoying more. We don’t shout about being an eco-friendly business, but going easy on the planet is a nice bonus of leading a healthier, self-reliant life. You tend to consume more local unprocessed goods and generate less waste along the way. We live these values and we help others to do the same.
Over the years these values haven’t changed. We refuse to stock cheap, over-packaged products that serve no practical purpose and break at the first turn. Suppliers we work with, share our values. When we develop or select products we use them, learn how they work and make sure they are practical, sustainable and sturdy.
