meet the kiwi, james.
Meet James Williams, orchardist and owner of 'Williams Bros'.
'Williams Bros' name is in recognition of the generations of family who have toiled the land since 1905. The land began being used as farmland but these days they have more crops than cows!
The orchard is nested in the Manutuke valley untouched by frosts just south of Gisborne. As one of New Zealand's sunniest spots, it's perfect for growing Citrus fruits.
Six years ago, James and his wife Kristina began planting fruit trees which are now producing mouth-watering mandarins, oranges, tangelos, lemons and limes.
Satsuma Mandarins and Sweet Navel Oranges are 2 of their specialities, suppling over 1000 tonnes a year. Most of these stay in New Zealand whilst a small amount make their way over to us in Hong Kong - how lucky are we!
