Nuts ’n May was established as an orchard in 1987 by Diana & Walter Loader. Hel Loader & Scott Wilson brought the farm in 2012 and continue to run it as a family business.
The farm is in the Wanganui District, just before the historic Bushy Park homestead on Rangitatau East Road. The orchard is run on sustainable lines and all our nuts are spray free. As well as walnuts, we grow chestnuts, hazelnuts, and macadamia. We also run a number of free range pigs that are fattened on nuts to produce outstanding pork.
Our walnuts are harvested in autumn and are available from May each year (hence the name – Nuts ’n May). For an update on this years harvest, and other nut farm news visit our facebook page: Nuts ‘n May. You can orderfrom our website, or visit the farm and buy nuts at the gate.
We welcome visitors and can arrange farm tours on request. Our self contained cottageis also available for those interested in visiting the farm for a short stay. Please contact us if you wish to arrange a visit or rent the cottage.
