Eight years ago, we stopped at the Mamaku Blueferry farm and bought some blueberry dessert syrup. Little did we know we would end up rationing it once we got home because it was so good. On this trip, we spotted the road sign and paid another visit to this friendly farm. We stalked up on syrup, sampled the wine and... More

This place was a little hidden treasure and well worth turning off for. They were more than helpful and the shop was full of wonderful treats to try and take home. Who knew you could do some much with Blueberries?

We visited outside of blueberry season so there wasn't much happening at Mamaku Blue, though they do have a small shop selling blueberry jams, jellies, wines and confectionaries that are worth checking out. Their blueberry muffins are magnificent so I would definitely suggest this as a morning or afternoon tea stop. Aside from the muffins they also have quite an... More
