ABOUT PONG'S CREEK

Deep in New Zealand's South Island, bound between the Pisa Mountains and the Clutha River, lies Pongs Creek. It is named after Pong Woo, a village in the Guangzhou province where many Chinese gold miners came from during the Central Otago gold rush in the 1870s. Pong's Creek's fresh and pristine glacial waters travel through the Robert family’s property giving their small cherry orchard life, the ability to thrive and of course, its name.

PRECIOUS METALS TO PRECIOUS FRUITS

From panning to picking, thePong’s Creek soils continue to be a source of wealth.

The spectacular but short-lived yield of gold served to open up the region to those who appreciated that the soils could yield much more than just a metallic harvest.

The soils, among other factors, now create the perfect environment for today’s red gold; World Class Cherries.

A PREMIUM CNY GIFT

Pong’s Creek Orchard was once a glacial bed. It now forms part of an extensive river terrace with of free draining healthy soils. The temperate climate, cold winters, short and intensely hot summers with low humidity create a paradise for cherries to flourish. They grow slow and have especially an high concentration of sugar, firm flesh and a rich red exterior. Pong's Creek Cherries are of premium, world class standard making them ideal for gifting.

When we think about our Six Barrel products, we occasionally do get that ‘our hands are tied’ feeling—not because we don’t know what to mix it with; it’s just that there simply are too many options, and that they are all too good to pass on.
