Orchard and Fruit Stall
Growing and providing fresh fruit and more – Quality that will satisfy the gourmet in all of us
Subject to seasonal availability Johnson’s Cottage Orchard offers fresh Apricots, Plums, Peaches, Nectarines, Cherries, Berries, and more.
Established in the late 1800s, Johnson’s Cottage has a proud history of growing first-class quality fruit in the beautiful Central Otago township of Roxburgh. Proprietor Lou Gilchrist says: “We are all about tree ripened fresh tasty fruit. Our customers know that buying direct from the orchard means there are no compromises when it comes to quality and freshness.” Taste the fresh difference that comes when you can see where your fruit comes from and talk to the people who dedicate their lives to producing it.
Browse an extensive range of fresh fruit, delicious condiments and preserves at the stall, meet the team who are always happy to share their knowledge, and advise you of the best ways to keep and use the fruit.
The always popular travel ‘Getaway Australia’ show screened in Australia featured Johnson’s Cottage, claiming it to be: ‘The stall to visit for top quality fruit and service’. Johnson’s Cottage was Winner of the Central Otago Young Growers Awards, and Runner Up in the National Awards.
