Berry Blog

We love berries. We eat them every day. Sometimes we cook them, sometimes we eat them straight out of the packet. This blog is our way of sharing and showing off some of the ways we use our berries. We've prepared the recipes in our test kitchen - which doubles as our staff kitchen. We hope you enjoy these recipes and ideas as much as we do.

Orchard Gold's new Smoothie Bike

Written by Trisha on December 18th, 2013.      0 comments

We've got a new toy - and we love it.  We play on it often and everyone who calls into our office gets a chance to hop on and have a blast.  Check out our new Orchard Gold Smoothie Bike ...

Simon and Pahrnia OG Smoothie Bike

Simon Cochrane, Orchard Gold's sponsored Ironman was testing the Smoothie Bike yesterday when Pahrnia just happened to dropped by selling fresh strawberries. Well we couldn't resist the opportunity for a great photo, and for the strawberries. Thanks Pahrnia, you were a great sport.

Simon's had a very good 2013 and we look forwarding to supporting him again in 2014.  His first event is the Port of Tauranga Half Ironman in January.

Now back to the Smoothie Bike:  


We are hiring the Orchard Gold Smoothie Bike out to schools or other fund raising events in the greater Auckland area.  For school fundraisers we waive the normal daily hireage fee so the only thing we charge for is the cost of the frozen fruit that we supply.

The bike comes with two blender jugs, a folding table, a large chilly bin (for the frozen berries) and two display flags to advertise what you are up to.

It takes about 30 seconds to fill the jug with fruit, milk and whatever else you want to add and about 30 seconds to blend them together. Each blender jug is one litre so depending on the size of the smoothies you are making you should be able to sell about two or three smoothies per minute.

We are taking bookings now so be in quick to secure this novel and healthy way to generate funds now. Click here to inquire further.
