About The Feijoa Company

Our orchard and pack house were established in Kaihere on the Hauraki Plains in 1974. Brought by Jill and Garry McIntosh in 1994 and converted to a specialised feijoa orchard, and now owned and operated by Hannah and Earle. With two generations of orchardists at Kaihere, the McIntosh family has a solid background and experience in producing some of the best feijoas in New Zealand.

Nestled at the base of the Hapūkone ranges, the first European settlers named the area “The Orchard” after the quince and peach trees grown by local Maori. The special characteristics found only in the soils of the Hauraki Plains impart a unique flavour profile on our fruit, one you can only experience by tasting a Feijoa Company feijoa.
