Urban gardens and seasonal orchards. It is the love of the land and the age old process of growing organic, artisan fresh produce that keeps Wanganui artisan fruit growers at the top of their game, bringing small batch, sustainable, locally grown fruit to market - with a healthy dose of love and provenance
The Riverside Orchard in Ashhurst showcases family values and exceptional organic produce. The Riverside Orchard has been family run for generations and as the new family arrivals take part in the farming activities – the passion for farming just continues to grow. For over 40 years the farm on the banks of the Manawatu River has been supplying the North Island with mouth-watering freshly grown goodies and for the last few years Riverside Orchards has even tackled the online market. If you are enjoying Ashhurst’s fresh, flavoursome fruits and vegetables or juices and products made from the wares then there is a good chance these are the “fruits” of Riverside’s tireless work and dedication to loving the ground that loves them!
