ABOUT PONG'S CREEK
Deep in New Zealand's South Island, bound between the Pisa Mountains and the Clutha River, lies Pongs Creek. It is named after Pong Woo, a village in the Guangzhou province where many Chinese gold miners came from during the Central Otago gold rush in the 1870s. Pong's Creek's fresh and pristine glacial waters travel through the Robert family’s property giving their small cherry orchard life, the ability to thrive and of course, its name.
PRECIOUS METALS TO PRECIOUS FRUITS
From panning to picking, thePong’s Creek soils continue to be a source of wealth.
The spectacular but short-lived yield of gold served to open up the region to those who appreciated that the soils could yield much more than just a metallic harvest.
The soils, among other factors, now create the perfect environment for today’s red gold; World Class Cherries.
