Hill Road Orchard is located in the Ormond township just outside of Gisborne.
Our small orchard is run by us, Cath and Matt, with "help" from our boys, Harry and Jack. The orchard enjoys a unique climate which allows us to grow fruit that is full of flavour and goodness.
Hill Road Orchard fruit is grown using sustainable methods - what does this mean?
We grow in a way that promotes beneficial insects and protects the environment.
In order to achieve the intense, delicious flavour of our juice we grow our fruit slowly in the Gisborne sun allowing the full flavour to develop.
What makes Hill Road Juice so special?
Hill Road Juice is made using only the best fruit, by people who are passionate about what they do. We harvest fresh fruit weekly then prepare and chill it in accordance with our food safety plan. We make fresh juice every single week, and to retain its great flavour, its unpasteurised. Yes, this means it has a shorter shelf life (10 days), and means we can only sell it in Gizzy, but that all helps make it so special!
We have a small, dedicated team - Jackie, Christina and Kate, who all ensure we get fruit and juice made every week for our customers.
You can see all about us and the orchard on TVNZ's Country Calendar (available on demand from 28th November 2021).
