Organic orchard lifeblood of market |

Organic orchard lifeblood of market | "In Marlborough's endless sea of grapes, Bob and Jennie Crum's organic Renwick orchard offers something of a life-raft.

With 20 varieties of plums, seven of blueberries, a feijoa block and newly planted kiwifruit vines, Windsong Orchard's diversity is perfectly pitched to meet the Marlborough Farmers' Market season.

'We've tried to get the widest range of production for the longest time over the season, set up basically for the Farmers' Market,' says Ms Crum.

The development of the orchard has been closely linked to the local producer market, established 10 years ago, with strong support from the Crums."
