Jackson Orchards is a family owned and operated Orchard based just outside of Cromwell. Central Otago is renowned for the rich, flavoursome stonefruits grown in the region. Cold crisp winters, hot dry summers, and a low annual rainfall combined with the rich mineral soils of a former gold-mining area provide the optimum conditions for producing fruit.
Three generations of Orchardists in the Central Otago region dating back to the late 1800’s, the Jackson family has a solid background of knowledge and experience in producing fruit.
When in Cromwell, travel on board Jackson Orchards’ yellow electric bus for a 45 minute fun, informative and educational insight into this working orchard; one of NZ’s largest apricot exporters. During summer months you get to sample lip-smacking fruit you’ve picked from the tree. Book via our website, or call us on 03 445 0596.

Apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, apples and pears – no fruit is more naturally delicious than when it’s grown in Central Otago, and even more so when it’s picked from trees on the Webb family orchard.
Since 1914, the Webb stonefruit (also called summerfruit) and pipfruit orchard has occupied the same sunny slopes on the outskirts of the Central Otago town of Cromwell, recognised throughout New Zealand for its much-photographed ‘Big Fruit’ sculpture.
