About this event

Looking to diversify your land use?

Considered commercial walnut growing?

  • Low carbon emissions
  • Low nitrate leaching
  • Low chemical input
  • Healthy product
  • Beautiful environment to live and work!

The New Zealand Walnut Industry Group and Walnuts New Zealand Co-operative Ltd are proud to present our Walnut Open Day, where you can come and learn about this emerging industry. Whether you are a farmer, a farm advisor, or an aspiring lifestyler, we hope you will find the day valuable.

The open day will be held on a walnut orchard in the Rolleston/West Melton area of Canterbury - you will be sent the address upon registration. We are also working on options for livestreaming and/or recording (for later viewing) this event – please keep an eye on the website below for updates.

We will have speakers covering growing conditions (soil, climate, time/labour commitment etc.), financial budget, environmental aspects (carbon footprint, nitrate leaching, water use), nutritional benefits of walnuts, and processing and products. You will have the opportunity to walk around a walnut orchard and see the machinery used.
