Urban gardens and seasonal orchards. It is the love of the land and the age old process of growing organic, artisan fresh produce that keeps Marlborough artisan fruit growers at the top of their game, bringing small batch, sustainable, locally grown fruit to market - with a healthy dose of love and provenance
Garden of Eden Orchards in Marlborough offer a delightful history alongside some of the region’s most delectably plump and sweet cherries. The owner of Orchards of Eden left school at 16 and began picking cherries until he graduated with a diploma in Horticulture a few years later. Harvest upon harvest laid roots in his heart and while many other farms were converting to grape vines instead; these orchards kept up with the cherry tradition. Decades on and Gary’s orchards have become a family affair with the love for tree-ripened cherries instilled deep in the kids’ lives and each one returns every season to play the roles they have loved since childhood; picking ripe, plump fruit from the trees once they are good and ready to be enjoyed from the markets within 24 hours.
