About Us

For more than 50 years McArthurs Berry Farm has been part of the community on the Taieri Plains. We’ve been through many highs and lows during that time, but have never stopped enjoying what we do. In 2017 we made the decision to focus mainly on producing the freshest and tastiest berry fruit in Otago, and also establish a hub for other suppliers. It ended up being one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.

Together, we are working to provide top quality vegetables and berry fruit,
for lovers of fresh, nutritious produce, locally grown, with pride.

Our People

Meet the team

Steve has been an integral part of the family farm since he was a young boy.  Educated at Lincoln University, he has dedicated the last 30 years to the farm and his community.  Outside of working, he loves rugby, and curling, and is a very keen gardener!

Kaye works on the farm alongside Steve.  She enjoys spending time with the family, and during her spare time, working in the garden.  She is a keen foodie, who loves creating delicious meals inspired by the produce produced on their farm.

Our Land, Our Community

The Taieri Plain lies to the west of Dunedin under the watchful eye of the long mountain Maungatua (892m). The Taieri River winds its way through farmland towards the sea, rarely flooding nowadays but over centuries covering the plain in rich river silt. The hawthorn hedges, small farms, grand houses, old oak trees, narrow country roads and peaceful countryside here are as close as you’ll get to rural England in New Zealand.

It’s the perfect place to explore by car or bicycle with beautiful hidden corners such as Woodside tucked under the hills, the country town of Mosgiel, and the timeless village of Outram.

TESTIMONIAL

The beauty of this place is that the fruits they use in their frozen yoghurts and ice creams are all grown on their farm which can be seen from the parking lot, and the same I believe for their vegetables. If you do have a chance, do try to visit and get a bargain with their produce which comes to like a quarter of the prices of those at New World and other supermarkets.
