Fruit Throughout the Seasons
Our new Cherry pack house runs for 4 months of the year, grading all of our own fruit for the major retailers and also supplying many fresh produce markets around the country. This facility has enabled us to pack for other local growers, giving them the opportunity to supply additional outlets. We have the capacity to store 3100 tonnes of fruit in modern controlled-atmosphere cold stores.
Cherry picking season starts in June taking us through to mid-August. Cherries are grown in intensively under modern tunnelled structures. The months of September and October are when the pears and apples are harvested. With the addition of the late season Braeburn apple, picking can now last until mid-November.
