Central Otago

Central Otago is New Zealand’s most inland region, with undulating landscapes that have been the object of many renowned local artists. Long hot summers and harsh, frost-laden winters make Central Otago the ideal growing environment for our suppliers to produce sweet, luxurious stone fruits in great abundance.


Le Fresh works with two family-owned growing partners; Dunstan Hills and Southern Fresh. They all share a quality driven approach and an affinity with the land they work on. For the best eating experience, every cherry is hand-picked, packed, and leaves New Zealand within 24 hours of harvest.
