The first plantings at Kilhaven Orchards started in 1983. Located on Koropiko Road, Hawke's Bay, the Kilmister family now operate over 50 hectares. They are proud to be 100% family-owned with both first and second generations of the Kilmister family operating the orchard blocks. The Kilmisters grow Royal Gala, NZ Queen, Fuji, Pacific Rose, Granny Smith and Lady in Red.
Through thick and thin, Bruce and Robyn have always believed that if you persist in growing a quality product in a clean, green environment such as New Zealand, eventually people will seek out your product.
