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.
Barker’s of Geraldine has added two unique fruit flavour blends to its fruit syrups range. Both flavours use the natural sweetness of the stevia plant to satisfy consumer’s not-so-sweet taste buds.
The innovative additions include the Lite Rhubarb with Raspberry and Rosehip, which has a stunning rhubarb blush colour and delicate flavour offering another sophisticated flavour option to current Barker’s fans.
Lite Rhubarb with Raspberry and Rosehip: a refined flavour and is delicious as a non-alcoholic alternative simply served with sparkling water or used as a fruit cocktail mixer. The bonus is it’s also low calorie. Whether featured in a refreshing cocktail or as part of a baking creation, the colour and flavour have great appeal.
