We work year round to bring you the best New Zealand Apples & Kiwifruit

We work tirelessly throughout the year to bring you the best possible fruit. Seasonal work peaks in late summer to autumn as the picking & packing season gets underway. During winter and spring we spend a lot of our time making sure our apple trees and kiwifruit vines are in the best possible condition to produce an optimum and premium crop of the best fruit.

Winter, Spring & Early Summer


Taking up a large part of the cooler winter months, pruning enables our trees to put all their energy into producing blossoms and fruit and lets in optimum light for fruit colouration. Kiwifruit pruning is all overhead work involving cutting out old vines and tying a vines for the next season.


In late spring and early summer after the blossom has fallen, our skilled thinners move through the orchards selectively removing fruit and “thinning” bunches of baby apples so the trees will grow the ideal number of perfectly sized juicy apples.
