  • Robinsons Bay Olive Oil

    Here at Moore Wilson’s Fresh we place a great importance on supporting our talented local producers, which is why you’ll find predominantly Wairarapa olive oils on our shelves. We went slightly further afield when it came to Akaroa’s Robinsons Bay Olive Oil - the newest addition to our range and our only olive oil from Canterbury.

    One of New Zealand’s most awarded olive oil producers, Robinsons Bay Grove Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil has taken out the prestigious title of Best in Show at the Olives New Zealand EVOO awards in four out of the past five years.

    Robinsons Bay are one of the southernmost olive groves in the world. In terms of New Zealand production, Canterbury are a relatively small player, with the bulk of olive trees being in Hawkes Bay followed, at a distance, by Auckland, Northland and Wairarapa.

    The Robinsons Bay olive trees were planted in 1994 in the unique climate and rich soil of the Banks Peninsula. Owners Chris & Annette Moore took over the grove in 2006 armed with knowledge predominantly from ‘the internet and a few good books’. The semi-retired couple were thrown into their first harvest, a back-breaking 24-day slog that includes manually shaking showers of plump olives from tall trees, collecting them and trucking them to Waipara for processing.

    There are seven different varieties of olive trees in the Robinsons Bay grove. From Tuscany there are the peppery and green Frantoio and Leccino varieties. From the dry hills of Israel, Barnea and Souri as well as Nabali from Palestine, Manzanillo from Spain and Verdale from South Australia.

    Each variety has its own unique character and flavour, and a delicate blending operation is required to ensure their blended olive oil has a perfect balance and taste. Chris and Annette quickly became dab hands, blending the oil themselves, mixing and matching using on their own judgment and feel for the product.

    As well as producing their award winning Robinsons Bay Grove Blend extra virgin olive oil (awarded a Gold medal, Best in Class and Best in Show in The Olives New Zealand Awards 2016, 2015, 2013 and 2012), they also infuse high quality extra virgin oil to produce versatile infused oils. Two flavours, Mandarin/Lemon and Olive/Chilli, are available from Moore Wilson’s Fresh.

  • J. Bush & Sons Honey

    Celebrating 100 years in business.

    J. Bush & Sons is a family owned and operated business of Apiarists (Beekeepers) based in Blenheim.

    Third generation Peter and Murray Bush are currently at the helm and manage 2000 beehives spread all over Marlborough.

    It all started in 1916, when Horace Bush (Peter and Murray’s Grandfather) needed bees to pollinate an apple orchard he was involved in. Horace soon discovered he enjoyed bees more than apples, so established enough beehives to earn a full time income.

    One of Horace’s sons, John, started working with the bees as a young child, eventually running the business in his own right alongside his wife of sixty years, Joy Bush. He is now 84 years young, and still enjoys being around the bees when time allows.

    J. Bush and Sons specialise in small scale production that targets and harnesses the special flavours found in honey collected from different trees and pastures in the South Island.

    Every flower or plant produces a different type of nectar that determines the flavour, texture, and colour, and the J. Bush & Sons team work hard to ensure the hives are at their best when each flower is ready each summer.

    From light delicate Molesworth Blue Borage collected in the mountains of inland Marlborough, to the robust flavoursome Manuka and Alpine Beech Honey Dew, there is a flavour for everyone.

    None of Bush’s honeys are heat treated during processing and packing, meaning all the wonderful nutritional properties of honey are retained.

    There are many wide and varied uses for honey including sweetening drinks or baking, as a remedy for sore throats, soothing scrapes and burns or even as part of your daily beauty regime. You can’t beat a classic though - toast remains the number one destination for honey!

    For an extra special treat Murray Bush recommends trying Bush’s Comb Honey on a cracker with a soft white cheese, (or blue if you prefer), and a glass of wine to really cap it off.

    J. Bush & Sons Honey is available from all Moore Wilson’s stores. The Bush family have been a valued supplier of Moore Wilson’s for many years and we are thrilled to see them reach the milestone of 100 years in business.

  • Alan Brown's Asparagus, Shallot, Feta and Egg Pizza

    To celebrate the launch of Alan Brown’s new Recipes from the Kiwi Pizza Oven, we have a very simple recipe from its pages – and it coincides nicely with asparagus season!

    Not everyone has the space for a wood-fired pizza oven, and Alan’s recipes reflect that – but we have something exciting to show off too. Check out the new Firebox BBQ Pizza Oven, the ultimate gift for pizza lovers and a great excuse to bring out the barbecue.

    As with most pizza recipes, you’ll need to get any oven as hot as you can – 350+ degrees C in a wood oven, or 250+ degrees C in a conventional one. The recipe below is for one 10” pizza.
