Business Type: Cherry Farm


West Melton Cherry Farm - a small family run business, “Large enough to cope, small enough to care”.

Address: 131 Melton Grange Rd RD1, West Melton, South Island, New Zealand 7671 Christchurch & Canterbury

Phone: view phone+6433742235



The season runs for approximately 6 weeks over December and January although a lot of hard work occurs in the off season.

Our spray programme although not wholly organic is carried out using natural materials e.g. seaweed extract and pine extract. NO organophosphate or gender bending sprays are used!

We try to accommodate PYO but cannot guarantee availability every day due to order commitments and staff availability to accompany you. You must pay before you eat! NO children under the age of 6 years are allowed in the orchard as we have machinery working every day. Any other children must be accompanied at all times when on site.

Cherries do not ripen after harvest. They are very perishable, so refrigerate them immediately after purchase. Cherries can be kept fresh in the refrigerator.

Hours of work

Open around the 17th of December.
Mon - Sun: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm.
Please phone to confirm if open, if it's raining we may be closed.


We are located just off the Old West Coast Road about 10 minutes drive from Christchurch Airport:
131 Melton Grange Road, West Melton, Christchurch.
