Ashley River Organics

Mark & Annabelle

Located on the banks of the Ashley River, Mark and Annabelle have been growing apples and pears since 1990. The pair were always keen to grow organically, strongly believing in the benefits of organic for consumer health, grower health and the environment, so they converted their orchard to organic in 2007 and haven’t looked back since. Mark and Annabelle also have wider family involved in the New Zealand produce industry, some of whom they’ve now assisted in converting to organic growing as well. Today, they continue to explore sustainable growing, passionate about organically growing delicious and fresh New Zealand produce.
