Growing high quality crops existed for three generations in the family of Cornelius Antonius Dames who continued as a horticultural farmer.

Arriving from Beverwijk, Holland he brought with him his adopted skills as an expert bloom grower but soon applied his growing excellence to a new farming type.

Early in 1950 he began growing pip and stone fruits in a richly fertile land belt between Hastings and Havelock North, New Zealand.  

It is our privilege to continue working with the company which today farms over several locations and grows apples, pears, peaches and nectarines on the alluvial soils of the Hawkes Bay Fruit Bowl.
