Richards' Orchard Fruit Stall  

An Old-Fashioned Fruit Stall

We are a small family owned and run orchard in the Nelson region of New Zealand. Our roadside stall specialises in tree-ripened heritage and old-fashioned eating and cooking apples. In season, we also sell pears, plums, greengages, quinces, damsons, zwetschen plums and a few peaches.

We grow our own fruit and sell it through our stall (sorry, no phone or mail orders or deliveries).

We are open daily from January until August/early September each year.

The stall is at 668 The Coastal Highway (Highway 60). It is 500 m north of Bronte Road, and 1.8 km south of the turnoff to Mapua (Mapua Drive).

Look for the blue and white sign.

Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates and more. I try to keep up to date with what is in the stall each day or so.

[Sorry, we have no jobs for pickers: Our picking contract is with Thawley Orchard http://thawley.co.nz/employment.html ]
