Kiku apple Field Day at Mount View Orchards (March, 2007)
Our Nursery enterprise was commenced in 1973 by Bill Robson, John's Father,
to produce trees for our orchard expansion. Due to the quality
of those trees, orchardists became interested in our surplus ones,
due to the demand, the Nursery became a complimentary enterprise
for our orchard which has grown to over 100 hectares of apples.
The Nursery production is concentrating on the supply of apple
trees and rootstocks for commercial orchards.
