Kiwifruit Orchards

For the last 3 years Steve Law has managed the Mangatawa Kiwifruit orchards and over the last 2 years has been instrumental in developing a further 10 hectares that will be G3 Gold producing.  This will take our total orchard area up to 30 hectares, 20 Haywood & 10 G3 gold.

The 2017-2018 strategy for the kiwifruit orchards is to cut-over a further 3 hectares of Haywood in the top front orchard and start the next new stage of development of further 3 ha of G3 gold, unless Zespri release another better drop by 2018.

Steve has flagged that due to his own orchard commitment’s he will only be available for the next 1 year to help Mangatawa to complete the new developments. Orchard Manager Ray Gordon was employed in 2017 and was primeraly responsible for mangaement of the Haywood orchards. As the new G3 orchard's are starting to produce Ray is also resposible for themanagement of those. 

Kempton Werohia, our first Horicultural Cadet, has been in Management training with Seeka Kiwifruit Industries for the last year and a half, he is currently on our orchard and shared with Ranginui 12 Orchard.
