There is always something happening in our little piece of paradise! Trees, Bees and beautiful farmland keep us busy. We are located in Oamaru, North Otago.
Currently we are producing EverGrow Bags, grafting cherry trees and tending our Cherry Orchard, ready for some delicious cherries to be harvested in the summer.
We have around 1200 cherry trees. We have popular varieties, Lapins and Stella as well as the sought after white Rainier cherry, and tart cherries which are excellent for cooking, baking and juicing, and an amazing health tonic.
2016 was perfect timing for us to get into the cherry business, as well-known Oamaru growers Fred and Jill Field were closing down their cherry orchard to aid the sale of their property. They helped us to carry on where they have left off, we’ve purchased their trees and sell fresh cherries from the same stall by the highway on South Hill that the Fields have sold their ‘La Cherries’ from for over 15 years. Look out for us from mid December time until late January/early February. Come and try our BIG, juicy and delicious cherries!
