Te Mata Peak:  The back drop of this view to our East is Havelock Hills and Te Mata Peak.

Te Mata, a giant chief of the warring coastal Maori tribes, was seduced by Hinerakau, beautiful daughter of the inland Heretaunga's tribal chief. To prove his love of Hinerakau, Te Mata began to "bite his way through the hills" to provide easy access between both coastal and inland tribes. Te Mata died before completing the work and his body forms Te Mata Peak from which the beautiful Hinerakau leapt to her own death.


Spring Bloom (Sep-Oct):  As our fruit trees awake from their winter dormancy the sap system begins to flow and new shoots emerge.  This bloom period of growth occurs during the spring time and accompanies the formation of new fruit flowers.  We use bees and other apple varieties to pollinate these flowers which are then carefully tended to become the new season's apple crop.
