Description

This is food gathering as we used to do in our childhood but the bushes have a generous coating of berries and no prickles. The staff encourage customers to pick wherever they like and can sample the berries to get the ones they really like. Training is given by the staff on the way to pick and ice cream containers are provided to pick into. Picking is not arduous, most females manage 3 kgs per hour and men do a bit less. Children are good pickers too.

Family groups are encouraged, children are our customer of the future. When sufficient is picked the staff will weigh and pack the blueberries.

Located just 20 minutes from Cathedral Square in Christchurch, the orchard has a quiet country atmosphere within a short drive of Christchurch.

Blueberries, The choice fruit for the Freezer 

Blueberries are the ideal way to get a taste of summer in winter. Because Broadfield Berryfruit's berrys are spray free they are ready for the freezer straight from picking. Provided the fruit was dry when picked, placing the berrys into the freezer in a plastic bag will provide free flow berrys for later use in whatever volumes are required. 

A cupfull can be removed for your favourite muffin recipe or try defrosting half a cup for 60-80 seconds in a microwave for a great winter breakfast. The berrys also keep well fresh, up to a week in a domestic fridge provided the berries are dry.
