"In September 2011 we bought our lifestyle block in Katikati for the lifestyle it offered; knowing practically nothing about the Hayward orchard that “came with” the house and garden. Our first harvest yielded about a quarter of the orchard’s potential. Through Michael’s employment in the wider Kiwifruit industry, we met some of the Hume Pack-N-Cool team.  Consequently, Humes took over the management of our orchard which resulted in a harvest more than double our previous harvest. 

At this time, Zespri offered a round of G3 Gold licence to Growers.  In spite of our small size, the senior staff at Hume Pack-N-Cool spent time discussing with us the costs and benefits of grafting over to G3.  Since then, Hume staff have helped us not only in securing licence, but also in every step of the way in the conversion process from the orchard’s tired Hayward state to a rather tidy, gold orchard. We are both so grateful to the staff for all they have done for us over the past three years and we look forward to many, many more years with Hume Pack-N-Cool."
