Our Story

Our heritage, our history, our quality

More than 100 years in the making.

At the heart of Central Otago, the world’s premium quality cherry region, lies the Clyde Valley. Overlooking this valley is the mountainous "Three Kings" rock formation.

The Paulin family have been growing within sight of the "Three Kings" for three generations. For more than 100 years, we have been perfecting the cherries we grow.

Our history, our family, our quality. Shared with you.

our values

We stand for a trusted quality


For more than 100 years, we have built a family run business that brings generations of passion together in these delicious cherries.


With every season, we take even more care to ensure that the quality that goes in the box is the quality that our customers deserve. Only the very best, every box, every season.


Growing premium quality cherries, in the Clyde Valley, brings immense responsibility. These are the best cherries in the world, and we must grow them, harvest and ship them to our customers, using only the best quality systems and processes.
