Our Growing Region

Ashburton, Mid-Canterbury, located on the 44°S parallel, has unique climatic conditions and terrain: we can be in a crop at sea level, and within 30 minutes be at another paddock and be 300 metres above sea level and close to the mountains.


Our focus is to deliver quality produce. We work hard to be certified in accordance with Global GAP, the internationally recognized standard for farm production.

We also have local Farm Environmental Plans and Nutrient Budgets that are obtained every year.

We have a percentage of farm land certified BioGro, that allows New Zealand producers to access international markets and tap into the growing demand for organic produce. BioGro is equivalent to USDA (United States Department Agriculture) for organic produce and JAS (Japan Agricultural Standard) for organic plants and processed foods of plant origin.
