30 years ago, Gary Bignell graduated with a Diploma in Horticulture—specializing in growing cherries. Since then he and his wife, Steph, have dedicated their lives to growing and selling the freshest cherries direct to customers all over New Zealand.
Their kids, Cameron, Renee, and Jacob quickly discovered that they enjoyed being cherry growers and sellers themselves. Soon, everyone in the family formed part of the team. It was in 2011 when they built Eden Orchards itself in the beautiful Waihopai Valley.
