Who is Hunter and the Harp?
Hunter and the Harp is the brainchild of entrepreneur; Joel Robinson, who believes that Australians are curious enough and acutely aware of themselves that they want to try new, exciting and innovative things. The idea of staying in the same job for 50 years then retiring, or raising children in the same home town as they themselves were raised, of having meat and three veggies for dinner every night has passed for most. Australians like to sample new foods, that want to have new experiences and most of all be aroused sensorily; we’re becoming less materialistic and more experience gathering because when we grow old, it wont be that surround sound 3D TV that gets you up every morning, but rather the memories of good times shared with those you love.
The name came up from a core company value; family first. We strongly believe that strangers are just friends you haven't met yet. This starts 100% with our name and logo. Hunter is the name of our 1st born boy The Harp comes from the name our 2nd born child; Harper who’s 16 months younger than Hunter. Hunter and the Harp reflect that core value that any one is welcome. We don’t care if your male or female (or both or neither), straight or gay, young or old, if you’re a local, an out of towner or visiting from overseas. Your skin colour or political standings will never receive any judgement from us, we don’t mind what religious values you possess, just the same way you love you’re children no matter who they are, it’s the mothers love of their child which knows no bounds, we want you to relax and laugh, meet new people and leave feeling like you’ll be back some day soon, as this home is never too far away.
I are building a legacy for our children, a successful business for them to one day to take over and continue our vision. We believe in a triple bottom line. That being:
- SUSTAINABILITY- We wan’t the future generations to have an environment healthier, more productive, more beautiful and finally less degrading than the one we currently live in.
- COMMUNITY- We will promise to source wherever possible products and equipment from local producers and manufactures in the community. We believe that supporting the local economy is paramount to the success of our business and in turn, will receive the locals support.
- PROFIT- After all, we are doing this for a reason. I was to eventually be able to abandon working for other people and create our own vision and life. This can only be possible if the business turns a profit but it is # 3 for a reason. Without creating a sustainable future where the community benefits, what’s the point? We are not here to profit at other peoples expense or at the expense of the environment.
So that’s us. Hunter and Harper and if your every around when our Australian Shepherd is about, you might even get to met Sykes too. We hope one day you’ll get to sample our product and let us know what you thought.
