Farm Tour, Sightseeing
The Mardon brothers, Philip and David, own and operate a family orchard in the beautiful and sunny Hawkes Bay of New Zealand. Their 73 acre farm is a combination of super fertile soil, climate and the brothers’ expert knowledge. They produce some of the finest fruit in the world; including quality apples for overseas and local customers with 2/3 of the orchard being planted with varieties such as Royal Gala, Fuji, Pacific Rose, Pink Lady and many more. The rest of the orchard is planted with stonefruit including peaches, apricots, nectarines, plums, and some of the best European Pear varieties. Philip and David welcome people from families on holiday to schools and educational groups, as well as horticultural industry groups.
