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.
Fruit growing has been part of the Nelson Tasman region for generations. With cold winters, warm, dry summers and rich alluvial soils the area produces amazing colour, texture and flavour in its fruit. It is also rich in nutrients and antioxidants due to the long sunshine hours, high light intensity and ample rainfall.
With 224 hectares of planted land, our Motueka orchards grow apples, kiwifruit, pears and hops.
