Jackson Orchards Guided Video
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.
Jackson Orchards grow a variety of cherries, apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, greengages, apples and pears during our season from November to April... READ MORE HERE
Real Fruit Ice Cream, Sundaes, Smoothies & Juices!
Naturally delicious, our ice creams are made in front of you where real fruit is added to the ice cream base mix for blending and swirling into a waffle cone or sundae dish. It’s the same for frozen yoghurt.
There’s nothing artificial about our juices and smoothies either. You see the fruit go in and after a minute or so, pure deliciousness poured out.
