Grown lovingly in the Horowhenua, Cam and Catherine Lewis present you with their fresh strawberries. Bounded by the mighty Tararua ranges to the east and the Tasman sea to the west, the location of Lewis Farms and the corresponding temperate climate is what sets our produce apart from the rest!

 

Our Story

The heart of the operation, Dunoon, has been in the Lewis family for four generations. On 1 July 1934 Vincent Lewis purchased Dunoon to milk cows. His son Campbell, then farmed the land in sheep and dairy in conjunction with his father; his guardianship over the land extended for 51 years. Campbell’s son Geoff then took over the reins of Dunoon in 1986 to farm in bulls and asparagus. Fast forward to today, where Geoff’s son Cam and his wife Catherine, are following the footsteps of Cam’s great grandparents, grandparents and parents and are now growing strawberries at Dunoon.

As fourth generation farmers on the land, they know a thing or two about how to grow great food. You can rest assured that the strawberry you are biting into, has had over 75 years’ worth of farming knowledge and skill poured into it.

Enjoy!
