Where it all begins. Planting of new vines for the upcoming seasons. Planting services offered when required for the new season.


Pole Stringing

Each successful kiwifruit orchard needs solid foundations. This begins at stringing the hundreds of poles the vines grow on. Though it may seem small, stringing the poles is a vital step to the kiwifruit industry.
