Our avocados come from our 10 acre block in Glenbervie, just a 10 minute drive from central Whangarei.
The Glenbervie area is characterised by rich volcanic soils and stone walls built by early Scottish immigrants in the mid 1800s. Our 400 young trees are mainly of the Hass variety.
All of our avocados meet the stringent industry standard requirements of export grade avocados (NZGAP Certified) ensuring the best of quality and care. They are fertilised by organic fertiliser. The quality of the soil results in a full flavoured avocado that stands out from the rest.
Our bee hives help with pollination and therefore yield. A small quantity of honey will be available in the autumn – please enquire if you are interested.
We hand pick, sort and pack the avocados sent to our customers as needed to ensure both quality and freshness. Some external blemishes like wind rubbing might affect the avocado’s appearance but the internal flesh will be bruise-free with no stringiness. Should a problem avocado slip by we are happy to provide a replacement.
We are delighted to provide you and your friends with the highest quality avocados available in NZ.
