Up the apples and pears in Greytown

Molewood Orchard in Greytown opened for its 2024 Pick Your Own [PYO] season earlier this month.

The family-run orchard opened to the public for the first time last year, with its PYO apples season “greeted with huge enthusiasm” from visitors throughout Wairarapa and beyond, co-owner Wendell Cooke said.

This season, the orchard opened its pear block to pickers: With fruit lovers able to choose from the Buerre Bosc, Packham’s, Taylor’s Gold and Doyenne du Comice varieties.

Wendell Cooke said the orchard will be opening its new picnic area, Molewood Meadows, to the public – intended as a hang-out spot for customers and a space for community events.

Cooke said the first couple of PYO sessions for this year have been well-attended. “One family even brought a trolley and the kids had a great time riding along with the apples”.

Molewood Orchard, 17 Mole St, Greytown, is open for PYO apples and pears 9am-4pm each Saturday and Sunday until the end of King’s Birthday Weekend.
