Finished Harvesting for 2018
We’ve packed up our harvesting machine and put our punnets away for another year. Its time to let the frosts and rains of South Westland’s winter do their work while we focus on life indoors.
I’m busy in the kitchen making relish and compote and Kevin has the chillier job of completing our new processing shed…Brrrrrr!
Thanks to all who were involved in this year’s harvest and the building project. Its been a great adventure and we’re incredibly grateful to the many friends who’ve been supporting us along the way.
All going to plan we’ll have more productive fruiting beds next year- it won’t extend the season but it will mean there are a few more cranberries to go around!

Handing on the torch.... Just before Christmas Kevin and I took ownership of Tony & Marj Allan's wonderful project- Cranberries Westland. We think its a fascinating and extraordinary business- this business of growing and processing NZ Cranberries. We're settling into life on this lovely little Cranberry farm here on the Old Christchurch Road in Hokitika. Kevin has been working alongside Tony since the harvest in April and I came on board a little later- spending time with Tony in the kitchen and Marj in the office. So off we go- into the new year and the excitement of a new business venture. We wish Tony & Marj the very, very best on their many adventures. No fresh Cranberries to photograph at this time of the year- just these frozen ones,recently made into our first bactch of Cranberry Relish. Customer, friend, grower or just interested? Please don't hesitate to get in touch! Kate Buckley & Kevin Mac Gregor
