Our orchards are located on land that holds immense significance to local Māori. With views of cherished maunga (mountains), awa (rivers) and marae (Māori meeting house), these lands serve as a reminder to place, people and events.
With 224 hectares of planted land, our Motueka orchards grow apples, kiwifruit, pears and hops. We are charged with making a sustainable return and ensuring the land is passed to future generations in the best possible condition.
Our fruit is rich in health giving nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins. This is due to the long sunshine hours, high light intensity and ample rainfall.
Sustainable fruit production
We act as custodians of the land. We are committed to the sustainable production of fruit grown to the specific requirements of global markets. Our orchards and pack houses exceed all international standards for fruit safety. Read more
We are also proud partners with Tuners & Growers, growing Envy apples in a joint venture called Wawata.
