Barker’s

Intro

After 47 years, Barker’s of Geraldine is still on a corner of the original family farm, 8km from the South Canterbury town of Geraldine. The farm sits in the lea of the Four Peaks mountain range, beside the Te Moana River and surrounded by rolling pastures.

The farm is now a thriving business, making world class jams, chutneys, syrups and condiments. Barker’s supports the local community employing around 170 local people, and always buys local produce whenever possible.

Tinkering in the Shed

While most preservers boil the fruit at high temperature, losing a lot of flavour in the steam, the Barker’s vacuum cooker gently boils the fruit, keeping the structure and subtle flavours – a unique and loved character of Barker’s jam.

Squeezed and Pressed Juice

The summer of 1981 saw an endless supply of blackcurrants, father Anthony and son Michael decided it was time to put them to use, and set out to make their first non-alcoholic drink. Barker’s Blackcurrant, a pure and natural squeezed and pressed juice was a hit with adults and children nationwide.

“It’s the quality and superior flavour that comes from squeezing over 750 antioxidant rich, Canterbury blackcurrants, which has helped Barker’s become a family favourite and number one seller.”

– Michael Barker
