H&J Roberts orchard and fruit stall are situated in Earnscleugh, between Alexandra and Clyde - sunny Central Otago.
We have an extensive Stonefruit, Summerfruit and Pipfruit orchard. We pack home grown export Apricots and Cherries, as well as Nectarines, Peaches, Plums and Pears for the local market for centres as far away as Auckland. Our fruit is sold in the distinctive purple box under our "Southern Fresh" trade name.
Our policy is to "Consistently meet the needs of our customers now and in the future by providing safe and healthy produce grown in a sustainable manner"
A family run business, the orchard is a partnership of Harry Richard Roberts and Joan Ruth Roberts. Other family members working on the orchard are son, Harry Allan Roberts (Harry Jnr.) and daughter, Vicky Ruth Roberts. Harry and Joan have another daughter Maryanne who is married and lives at Becks near Omakau. It's a fun, relaxed place to work
The main "Home" block and packhouse are situated on McIntosh Road, Earnscleugh, Alexandra being about half way between Alexandra and Clyde. Our fruit stall "Robs Rural Market" is on Earnscleugh Road, between Alexandra and Clyde.
