Kerikeri and Kaitaia/Awanui are nationally significant horticultural bases. Orcharding in the Kerikeri area in particular has been a staple of the local economy since the times of the early settlers.

Law North Limited has operated in the area for 100 years, through its predecessors through to the present day. Over that time, we have provided full legal services to various operators in the horticulture industry overseeing the transition from market gardening and citrus to kiwifruit and avocados and the conversion of land to different uses. We also have considerable experience with post-harvest operations. We have more recently been involved in the prevention of Psa entering our community and dealing with contaminated sites.

Richard Ayton is our specialist horticulture legal adviser and has over thirty years experience in the industry. Contact Richard to discuss your horticultural business.
