the raspberry café
how we grow
Above all else, Otahuna Berries are very proud of the fruit we offer for sale. We believe that every berry should look and taste fantastic and our aim always is that the fruit reaches you 'spray free'.
We grow approximately 10 acres of "Fairview" raspberries and around 5 acres of "Seascape" strawberries and these are available fresh as below, but weather dependant.
pick your own
We try to offer pick your own from 27 December, however much depends on the quantity and timing of the crop.
Where do we begin? For a start, berries are classified as "super foods" and as such have no saturated fats, cholesterol or salt. Raspberries and strawberries have excellent levels of dietary fibre and Vitamin C, with raspberries also having good levels of Vitamin K and magnesium and strawberries high in potassium and manganese. Berries contain antioxidants which means not only that they have cancer fighting properties, but they can reduce ageing and lower blood cholesterol levels. All of this AND they are delicious!
