The Braeburn Apple

Horticulture runs in our blood​

Back in 1952, local farmer Mr O. Moran found an unusual looking apple growing wild on the side of the road in the Waiwhero area near Motueka. He took the apple to Cedric’s late grandfather Norman and his brother Eustace Williams who were well known in the area for their fruit growing prowess.

The brothers quickly saw the potential of the apple and took it to the then ‘Apple and Pear Board’ suggesting it should be grafted onto existing proven rootstock. Early trials were promising so the decision was made to grow the apple commercially.

70 years later the Braeburn apple continues to thrive commercially.


Driven by innovation​

After 36 years experience in horticultural contracting I am getting tired. But this is a good thing, as its encouraging me every day along with our team to look for more innovative ways to operate. 

Health and safety are also catching up, but we must remember safety pays off and innovation increases productivity and comfort. Studies have demonstrated that happy employees are 12% more productive on any given day.
With your help let us together be more accountable for the way we do things today.

Innovation never stops.
