To Mark and Kasia Henderson of Loburn Grove, small is beautiful. The couple’s boutique orchard, just north of the Ashley river, produces an abundance of hazelnuts, feijoas and plums which they turn into small batches of handcrafted products to sell through selected boutique outlets.
Why North Canterbury? Loburn is an industrious area with many small orchards and businesses. The area has favorable growing conditions for tree crops and we love the vibe of the area which is in commutable distance from the city.
What’s your favourite thing to do in North Canterbury? For recreation visiting Hanmer Springs – the pools, walks and cycle trails.
