Strawberries are our biggest drawcard and are grown onsite and picked daily. We grow three varieties of strawberries Camerosa, Camille Royal and Albion which is a new later variety. The Strawberry season runs from October through to May.

We grow as much produce for the shop as we can. From the field to the table in one day you can’t get much fresher than that. What we don’t grow we try to source locally.

With Hawkes Bay being the fruit bowl of New Zealand, there isn’t a shortage of great quality fruit.
