Introducing Jerome a.k.a Farmer/Kiwi entrepreneur
How did Future Post start?
During a fencing job at an old rubbish dump, I was breaking conventional wooden posts and digging massive holes because of the amount of plastic waste. I thought, I wonder if we can make a post out of rubbish.
What makes your posts so fantastic?
They are made from 100% plastic waste. We are reducing the amount of plastic going to landfill and floating around the country and ocean. They last up to 3 times longer than a conventional post, do not leach any chemicals and are BioGro certified for organic farming.
What has been the most rewarding part of the Future Post journey?
Creating a unique company from scratch and overcoming the massive hurdles of building a new machine – a world first! I’m also super proud to be surrounded by a great positive team of people.
What’s your favourite food and why?
Freshly caught crayfish and scallops wrapped in honey and manuka smoked bacon. Cooked on the beach, with a Northland red kumara & garlic infused mash. Served with a Villa Maria Reserve Noble Riesling Botrytis. I catch the crayfish and scallops while diving, I make my own bacon, you can’t beat Northland kumara and the Villa Maria wine is liquid gold.
