Our Story

Western Harvest was first established in the late 1980’s when the Jones family purchased 16 acres of prime river silt- peat soil mix.

The fashionable fruits of that era were kiwifruit & boysenberries and alongside this we also planted blackberries, passionfruit, strawberries and later, Taylors Gold and Burr Bosc pears, then finally at the request of our Australian customers, rhubarb.

Employment

Here at Western Harvest we need a great team of reliable workers to come in and help harvest our blackberry crop in February and March each year.

Food Safety

Western Harvest aims to provide safe, high quality products for our customers by incorporating the highest standards of food safety for all of the products.

 

Western Harvest adheres closely to strict quality control, traceability, premier customer service, forward planning, staff training, accurate reporting and performance reviews. These principles ensure success and require the commitment and cooperation of both management and staff.

    "I could not believe my luck when I saw your bag of chopped up celery in Countdown. Brilliant, I wish I had seen it before. We got sick of buying huge bunches of celery which we only used a portion of and then wasted the rest."
