Western Harvest was first established in the late 1980’s when the Jones family purchased 16 acres of prime river silt- peat soil mix on the beautiful Kapiti Coast of the Lower North Island.
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.
As always fashion is fickle and we narrowed our selection of crops down to the highest performers which are to this day Blackberries and Rhubarb.
