After 50 years, Barker’s of Geraldine is still on a corner of the original family farm, 8km from the South Canterbury town of Geraldine
We’ve been providing tasty treats to New Zealand and the world since 1969, and invite you to visit our shop in Geraldine to sample our range of fruit juice syrups, preserves, chutneys, sauces and bakery fillings. With free tastings, an extensive range of products and gifting options, and all day cafe, visit Barkers Food Store & Eatery at 71 Talbot Street in the heart of Geraldine’s main street.
It all started in a converted cowshed on a corner of the family farm. Barker’s was founded on Anthony Barker’s innovation and a constant desire to produce quality products. Here at the farm we like to innovate and we always aspire to make the best tasting products. This vision has led us to make some of the biggest changes since we began making jam.
Our fruit preserves are a step toward the future for jam; fresher, fruitier and tastier than our old recipe – by adding more fruit and taking out some of the sugar. Our fruit syrup range now includes Barker’s 500ml range where we’ve squeezed select fruits and blended with botanicals and a minimum of sugar (*25% less than our original fruit syrups).
All this from a great business proud to acknowledge our New Zealand heritage and unique location, nestled at the base of the Southern Alps in Geraldine, South Canterbury.
