Bullcreek Orchard is situated in Longlands, Hastings, Hawke's Bay. The orchard is made up of a home block of 4 hectares and another 16 hectare leased block nearby. Bullcreek's home block has only had three owners in the past 100 years and MEG growers,the Derbidges, have owned the property for the past 20 years.
Apart from some of the pear trees on Bullcreek's home block, which are now over 100 years old, many of the apple trees have been replaced several times over in the past century. Since owning the block the Derbridge's have been replaced most of the original apples with higher coloured varieties at closer spacings.
The Derbridge's are at-home with their small boutique operation and they love growing apples in what they truly believe is the best apple growing region in the world.
