H & J Roberts

                   History

The Roberts family first set foot onto Earnscleugh soil on Queens Birthday weekend 1961. Harry was 11 at the time and left school when he was sixteen and bought his first shares in Roberts and Sons Orchard 6 months later. Harry married Joan in 1971 and they have three children.

In 1978 the brothers' partnership split up, the MacPherson Road property was sold and Harry and Joan purchased the three remaining blocks. Since then Harry & Joan have worked these three properties and have expanded the operation by purchasing a further 230 hectare block known as the "Fishtail" in 2001. This block had about 20 hectares of land available for orchard developement with the balance being a wonderful example of Central Otago schist hill country.

The business is very family orientated with 2 of the 3 children involved. Harry Jnr is married to Tasha and they have 4 children three boys and one girl so the continuance of the Roberts name looks assured.
