About Eden Orchards

BLENHEIM, NZ FOR OVER 30 YEARS

For over 30 years Gary Bignell and his wife Steph have been dedicated to producing and selling the freshest cherries direct to customers all over New Zealand. Their children Renee, Cameron and Jacob also quickly found their passion for cherry growing and became an integral part of the team. In 2011, the family set their sites on developing a cherry orchard in the beautiful Waihopai Valley, and after many years of nurturing and caring for the trees, Eden Orchards was born.

Every year during the cherry season, the Bignell family devoured a LOT of cherries, and noticed significant improvements in the quality of their sleep, and the disappearance of some of their nagging aches and pains. After lots of research, Gary discovered that sweet New Zealand cherries were even more beneficial then it was known. Interestingly, New Zealand cherries contain levels of melatonin much higher than other cherry varieties grown in the Northern Hemisphere, not surprising in view of the sunshine hours recorded in regions like Marlborough and Central Otago. The family began exploring a way to enjoy the superfruit all year around. After many years of testing, research and trial, the first bottles of Eden Orchards 100% Pure Cherry Juice launched - a single ingredient juice with no added sugar or preservatives, not from concentrate and containing over 2kgs of beautiful NZ cherries in every bottle.

Now, Eden Orchard’s delicious, natural fruit juices are loved and enjoyed by families throughout NZ, and are ready to be shared with the world. As New Zealand’s leading producer of cherry juice, the company’s full range also now includes 100% Pure Blueberry Juice - fantastic for brain cognition; Cherry Blueberry Mix - for when you want the benefits of both superfruits; and a Sparkling Cherry Drink - lots of fizzy fun that’s very popular with children. Every 30-50ml serving of Eden Orchards  juice contains powerful phytonutrients and antioxidants, and tastes absolutely delicious! If you are searching for a natural way to improve your sleep, maintain healthy joints, reduce inflammation, relieve muscle soreness and enhance brain cognition, these pure fruit juices are just for you.

Over 30 years ago, Gary left school at the age of 16 and completed his Diploma in Horticulture, specialising in growing cherries. Since then he and his wife, Steph, have spent the majority of their lives dedicated to producing and selling the freshest cherries direct to customers all over New Zealand.

Their children Renee, Cameron and Jacob quickly found their passion for their lives as cherry growers and sellers, with each family member forming an integral part of the team.

In 2011, the family set their sites on developing a cherry orchard in the beautiful Waihopai Valley as a joint venture with their friend, Stu Mclean. After many years of nurturing and caring for the trees, Eden Orchards was born.
