Barker’s of Geraldine is one of New Zealand’s favourite home-grown family businesses. Based in Geraldine, South Canterbury, the Barker family has been crafting delicious fruit preserves, chutneys and syrups for over six generations.
Established on the family farm in 1969 by inventor Anthony Barker who, after learning his mother’s skills for preserving fruit, went on to develop a successful cottage industry with a wild elderberry wine as his first product. This was followed by blackcurrant liqueurs, syrups, fruit spreads, jams, marmalades, chutneys, pickles and savoury sauces.
Barker’s products are available from supermarkets throughout New Zealand. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in-store, just visit their website www.barkers.co.nz and place an order online. Next time you are visiting Geraldine, remember to stop by the iconic Barker’s shop, where you can sample the entire range of products, purchase gift baskets and send products all over the world.
We squeeze New Zealand grown limes and add a touch of elderflower. We’ve been squeezing fruits for over 40 years and we reckon this is one of our best.
Squeezed New Zealand Limes with Elderflower simply add to sparkling or still water and top with ice cubes for a delicate and refreshing long drink – a perfect summer drop.
Great just on their own mixed with water, Barker’s fruit syrups also make great mixers for your favourite tipple and can be used as a wonderful base for cocktails
