our story

 

What started with Robert & Shannon and a blueberry orchard in 2001 soon became a crew – made up of twenty seven passionate organic-loving employees. From our berry pickers to our ice cream experts, we all help make this a fun and magical place – that is the orchard.

Years later, we are now New Zealand’s organic experts bringing you the world’s best organic certified fruit and producing delicious organic ice cream. They say sharing is caring, so we now send our deliciousness all over the world so likeminded organic lovers like you, can experience the taste of summer all year round. We may have grown, as well as our range, but our philosophy, values and commitment to organic remains intact.
