Monavale Blueberries grow delicious fresh organic blueberries and raspberries, as well other organic produce and attend the Waikato Farmers Markets from November through to March.
Monavale Blueberries is New Zealand’s largest certified organic blueberry orchard, based near Cambridge in the Waikato. The family owned and operated orchard has been growing organic blueberries since 1985. Monavale Blueberries Limited has full BioGro New Zealand organic status. Their reasons for this are threefold. Firstly they want to farm their land in an environmentally sustainable, natural and chemical free way. Secondly, they want to provide those who wish to eat healthily with a good quality, nutrient-rich, organically certified product. Thirdly, they wanted to maintain a healthy and chemical-free lifestyle as each of the three families that form Monavale Blueberries, live on the property.
Along side their delicious fresh organic blueberries and raspberries which can be eaten straight from the container, Monavale Blueberries also bring their food trailer to the Waikato Farmers Markets. Try a delicious hot waffle, topped with organic blueberry sauce and whipped cream, or a scrumptious organic blueberry or raspberry real fruit ice cream or frozen yoghurt, or an organic blueberry smoothie or Spider drink, all made with certified organic ingredients.
Monavale Blueberries produce a range of beverages from their organic blueberries, including 100% pure organic blueberry juice in 200ml and 500ml bottles and organic blueberry & apple juice in 275ml bottles. Monavale Organic Blueberry wine (sweet or dry) can also be pre-ordered at the market, for delivery the following week.
Monavale Blueberries also produce a number of delicious organic preserves from their organic berries including:
- Organic blueberry jam
