Barker’s of Geraldine has been on a corner of the original family farm, 8km from the South Canterbury town of Geraldine, since 1969.
Anthony Barker first started picking berries on the farm to make wine, aperitifs and liqueurs. Then the summer of 1981 saw an endless supply of blackcurrants and 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. The extensive range of Barker’s juice and fruit syrup blends continue to grow to this day.
The farm is now a thriving business, making world class Barker’s of Geraldine jams, chutneys, syrups, condiments and more. Barker’s supports the local community employing over 250 people, and buys local produce whenever possible.
