Abraham Lincoln was right, everybody does like a compliment and the team here at Matakana Berry Co & Gala Berry is no different.

We are really proud of our strawberry operation and over the last 35 years we have worked very hard to grow sustainably, improve our horticultural methods, reduce our carbon footprint and wherever possible, purchase products and services that are made locally and in an ethical manner.

We hand pick and pack our berries every day to ensure you, our customers, get only the freshest, ready-to-eat fruit. Our fresh strawberries are available from September through to January.

Just wanted to say "WOW" - what an unbelievable experience.  Thank you so much!

Recently I visited NZ from Australia and bought a fresh strawberry ice-cream at your stall on the side of the road.  Never in my life have I EVER tasted such amazing ice-cream! I could easily have devoured two of them, but exercised restraint.  It was absolutely DIVINE!!!

Your strawberries are the sweetest, largest and juiciest berries I have ever tasted. My grandkids and I especially like them dipped in chocolate

I have recently become a fruitarian and I absolutely had to contact your company to commend you on the quality of your strawberries. I eat about two punnets a day sometimes, and until this week had only been able to get imports from Australia. They seemed like they had been frozen?  Anyway, your strawberries are so sweet, fresh and like heaven to eat. I wish they were available all year
