Overview

On your arrival at the big red barn you will be greeted by our friendly staff who are fluent in both english and mandarin. Glenvale Orchard and Dam Good Fruit grow 18 varieties of cherries including the white varieties which are available from early December until late February. Glenvale cherries are renowned for being delicious in flavour. We only use totally organic fertiliser so you can be assured no nasty fungisides are used on our export grade cherries. We also grow apricots, peaches, plums, nectarines, peacharines, strawberries, raspberries and boysenberries which are tree ripened, picked daily and mouth-watering. The red barn is open 7 days a week from 8am - 6pm and located 56km from Queenstown, 50km from Wanaka and 3km from Cromwell. If you are unable to make it to the orchard Dam Good Fruit also has outlets in Arrowtown, Wanaka and Frankton which are open 7 Days from early December through to March. Quality and taste is our speciality - we don't export, we keep the best for you!

For city dwellers like us , the Dam Good Fruit ( Glendale Cherries) was not to be missed! Cherries come on trees , not in punnets in the supermarkets:-p The experience of cherry picking ( most importantly cherry-tasting as you pick) was fun & one...More

Damn good fruit has a very good variety of cherries available for picking and after an hour in the hot sun what better way to cool down than with a fresh fruit ice cream made to order.

Forget the other orchards and just go straight to this one, the best ever fruit you will find along with amazing fresh fruit ice creams. Buy off the shelf or pick your own.
